Come Play Chess

Anyone of any age or playing level is welcome at our casual weekly meetings. We require no formal membership process to just walk in and play. We usually have several boards and pieces. Beginners and more experienced tournament players attend every week.

We meet every Thursday from 6:00pm - 10:00pm. Some things that happen regularly at our meetings include:

  • Casual Games
  • Bughouse
  • Help for Beginners/Novices
  • Boy Scout Chess Merit Badge

Arlington Chess Club Meetings

No Membership Fee

Attendance and participation at our meetings is free. We consider you a member if you just show up for a meeting or tournament. Our tournaments do require an entry fee.

First Time Attendees

Just walk in and watch someone play. Somebody will probably say, "Want to play". And you'll play.

Quick Quads

Once each month we have a quick quad tournament at our meetings. Quick because the games are G/10;d5, which means each player gets ten minutes per game (with an extra five seconds each turn). Quads becase it is groups of four (usually matched by skill level) that just play each other. If possible we have rated and non-rated sections.
