What is the purpose of the Chess club?

The chess club exists to (you guessed it) allow chess players to socialise and have relaxed hangouts with people who share the same interest.

Do I have to be good at chess to join?

Ha! Definitely not - you don't even have to know how to play (we can teach you that). Our shared interest in chess is more a social excuse!

I'm good at chess though - are you all scrubs?

No! Some of our better members are tournament winning, king stomping machines! If you want a challenge, you'll definitely be able to find it with us!

Are you still meeting amidst this pandemic?

We meet every Thursday at 8pm on Discord. Join here: https://discord.gg/XAxJ8Tm
