It's deep cleaning time at the Levy Activity Center, and the holidays are upon us, so the Evanston Chess Club Schedule is re-arranged:

  • December 17: NO CHESS/NO BLITZ
  • December 24: NO CHESS
  • December 26: Chess (Thursday)
  • December 30: Chess (Monday)
  • December 31: NO CHESS
  • January 2: Chess AND BLITZ (Thursday)

Our regular weekly schedule (and Blitz on the third Tuesday of the month) resumes on Tuesday, January 7, 2020. Enjoy your holiday, and we hope to see you on some of our make-up days!

Evanston Chess provides relaxed, congenial chess to adults (high school and older). Some members like slow games, others prefer blitz. We offer rated play at our Saturday tournaments, and unrated play for adults at Tuesday night chess, where beginners are welcome. Membership is free. Our focus is on enjoying chess, not on prize money. Our club includes ages fourteen to over seventy, and players from beginners to masters.
