Napier ChessThis society is open to chess players of all levels (including beginners). Players will have the opportunity to participate in OTB (Over-the-board) tournaments with prizes. We also teach chess and help players analyze their games. Meetings will be once a week for about 2-3 hours.

Our members will be able to meet and play amongst like-minded individuals of varying skill ratings. As well as an environment to improve their chess and have fun! No equipment is required.

If you have any questions or suggestions, send us an e-mail.

Follow us for more on tournament updates and results, as well as chess facts and puzzles!
