Sterling Chess is the place to play tournament games!
Beginner to master, young or old; in the chess world, race, gender and class are invisible. Eight-year-olds compete with senior citizens, and investment bankers fight it out with janitors.
Sterling Chess tournaments are one-day events, played at time controls ranging from less than half an hour to more than one hour for all your moves.
U.S. Chess Federation membership is required. Sterling Chess is an affiliate of the USCF, a non profit organization devoted to promoting chess in America. If you need to join the USCF or renew your membership, you can do it online at www.uschess.org (click on Join/Renew).
If you're not ready to enter, please visit any of our tournaments; there is no fee for spectators.
