What we're about

The objectives of the Medford Chess Club are:
(1) Encourage use of the new chess tables in Medford Square akin to what currently exists at the public chess tables in Harvard Square and Chinatown.
(2) Provide a welcoming and supportive community for people of all ages who want to improve their skill at chess.

Currently, we meet every Sunday at 1 PM in Medford Square. If the weather is nice, we use the chess tables in Riverside Plaza (at the corner of Riverside Ave and River St). In the event it's too cold or the weather is lousy, we'll relocate to Colleen's Ice Cream & Sandwich Shop (61 High St, https://goo.gl/maps/MLEEEfAhr4U2 ). We have chess pieces, chess clocks, and friendly members who are willing to teach you the rules if you're new to the game.

Like us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/CheckmateMedford/) for chess set giveaways, chess puzzles, and other club information.
