Welcome to the Penn Chess Club







Welcome to the Ivy League Champion University of Pennsylvania Chess Club. Our mission is to promote the interest in observing, studying, and playing the royal game, that is, chess, by members of the university community and the general public. We welcome chess players of all backgrounds, from beginners to masters (to grandmasters). We are here because we appreciate the game of chess and because we enjoy the social and intellectual atmosphere it offers. So come out and join the fun!
Sundays: Club Meeting

Casual games, instruction, and bughouse
Houston Hall, 1st floor, in the room on the left with all the tables and chairs

The best way to reach us is to use the contact information below, to participate in one of our activities or to ask anybody you see playing chess on campus. You may also email Sam if you would like to join our listserv. The listserv is used to send weekly reminders about club meetings and information on possible other activities, such as matches against other colleges or local tournaments.
