Chess Clubs USA Including Alaska And Hawaii...A chess club is a club formed for the purpose of playing chess. Chess clubs provide for both informal games and timed games, often as part of an internal competition or in a league. Chess clubs typically provide:
• Informal, 'friendly' games
• Club and inter-club competitions
• Opportunities to play in one or more leagues organised on a geographical basis
• A personal rating system where the results of inter-club games are rated to enable players to judge their standing and progress
• Coaching by a more knowledgeable chess player
• A library of chess books
• Lectures/tuition evenings
• Social events
