Welcome to our club!

The Winchester/Clark County Parks & Recreation Chess Club has free chess sessions on the 1st and 3rd Mondays at 6:30 until 9 pm. Come and go as you please. 

Our free sessions include friendly chess matches via quads whenever possible, instruction, discussions, and socializing. We also have tournaments as announced.

This group is for the young and old alike. If you used to play chess or play online, this is a good, friendly group to get to know. Also, if you don't know how to play and would like to learn... come on out and we will teach you! It is said that chess is easy to learn, but hard to master.
