Welcome to the St George Chess Club Website!

Here you will find information such as upcoming events, results, contact information and photos.

With our community no longer continuing to keep COVID19 at bay and the whole state in lockdown, The Committee has made the decision that there will be no normal face-to-face chess played before Christmas, even after the current lockdown restrictions are eased. As such, our club will revert to online chess as our practical option (see information under Ónline Chess'). Accordingly, we have revised our calendar for the Club’s events for the rest of the year to reflect this position. We will continue to monitor the Covid situation and hope to be able to get back face-to-face sooner rather than later. If that does happen, we will advise all members and update the Calendar accordingly. Stay well, and we hope to see you at an online session soon.

If you are new to chess (either adult or child) we suggest that you either come along and play some social (non-tournament) games (there are almost always at least a few people looking for some friendly games on Tuesday nights!), or play in a couple of our shorter tournaments, such as the allegro (15 minutes each a game), rapid (20 minutes + 10 seconds per move each) and lightning (5 minutes each), before you enter one of the longer tournaments.
