For prospective members, the best night to attend the Club for the first time are the Social Chess evenings, Lightnings, Grim Reapers or the Gambit Tournament. Unrated tournaments such as these are played purely for fun, and are an excellent introduction to the club.
Potential members or players looking for social tournaments without joining the club are encouraged to try our Sunday Rapid Series. These are 5 round Rapid tournaments generally held on the last Sunday of each month, with an entry fee of $5 for members and juniors, and $10 for non-members. For more information, please click here.
