What happens at the chess club: 

The Sydney Chess Club is open to all players (adults and juniors) and the club houses players of all levels (beginners all the way to Masters).  Each week chess players meet for regular competitive chess and/or social chess.  We run a variety of both Internationally (FIDE) and Nationally (ACF) rated tournaments with time controls to suit all players (Lightning/Rapid/Classical).
The Sydney Chess Club is a great place to improve your Chess for many reasons:

  • You will regularly be playing at or above your current level
  • Players regularly share tips and ideas in post-game analysis
  • Players are happy to answer questions and give recommendations on how to improve your game
