Westchester Chess Club

We are a well-established yet growing chess club whose prime purpose is to serve lower Westchester County with fun times, competitive tournaments, and lectures by some of the area's best instructors.

***Please note: The club is now open for OTB play for fully vaccinated individuals. We have shortened the meeting time to end by 10 PM, and participants must wear masks at all times. Please check here for upcoming tournaments and events.

In addition, the club is operating online on Lichess. We have a Blitz Arena (5+0) on Mondays, and the Hudson Valley Team Battle on the first Thursday of each month (10+5). In addition, there is a monthly tournament (Swiss or Quads), one game per week at 45+5, open to club members by registration by email to Alan Kuras - a.l.kuras@gmail.com. For the monthly tournament, you need to be a member of the USCF.

For more information about the club, please contact us.
