The MIT Chess Club is dedicated to bringing together the chess community at MIT and providing a place to study, discuss, and (of course) play chess. Players of all strengths are welcome, and you don't need a USCF rating to come to our meetings and play a few games.

We are also committed to holding occassional tournaments on campus for MIT students, as well as participating in tournaments in the Boston area. (Note that, for some of these tournaments, a USCF membership is required to participate.)

If you have any questions about who we are or what we do, don't hesitate to contact us! We will be announcing the club meeting times on our mailing list.


Our next meeting is:

Wednesday August 27, 5:30-7:00PM, in 8-205
