Why Play at a Club?

Chess clubs allow you to play chess in a friendly setting away from the computer screen and the tournament hall.

Chess clubs welcome new members regardless of skill level. Novices and younger players can mingle with more experienced players to learn more about the game. Beginners can learn how to write down their moves, use a clock, and so on.

For those interested in playing competitively, clubs provide an opportunity to develop your game in different play formats or through discussion of chess positions and chess topics in general.
