What we're about

Bring a board & your clock (if you have ones you prefer) and look for others! It's a no-pressure, unrated, relaxed meetup where you can sit down and play anyone. Most attendees play Chess but we have a budding group of Go players who can now reliably find opponents.

Social links, tournament standings, etc. are available on our link tree: https://linktr.ee/bendchess

All skill levels welcome! We're part of this club because we love Chess or Go, we love playing with others, and we love helping each other learn and compete. Come and join us, introduce yourself and challenge someone to a game :-)

Monthly informal tournaments are held - ask us about our Quad league for more details!

We HIGHLY recommend you join our mailing list! https://www.subscribepage.com/o3u2m9
