A chess club for the rest of us…

Most adult chess clubs cater to the more accomplished player. This club in the Columbus, Ohio area will offer a place for the less accomplished player to learn and enjoy the game of chess without the intimidation of more highly skilled players.

Rated U1200 tournaments will be offered about every two months.
