Bunbury Chess Club

Are you a chess beginner? Or have you been around for a while, itching to try out your Sicilian Najdorf opening tricks over the board?

Come and visit our all ages chess club! We meet 6:30pm at Beyond Games & Hobby each Thursday night. We also meet 10am on the third Saturday of the month at the Bunbury Library. Entry to either by gold coin donation. You can also join us online for our monthly blitz tournament.

Thursday nights are very relaxed. It’s a chance to meet some other people, and play some friendly (or competitive) chess. You can play with or without a clock. The Saturday mornings at the Library begin with a 15-minute lesson, covering some beginner tactics and strategy. After this, we get into some casual games over the board.

We are a friendly bunch with a good range of abilities, and one thing in common: we are continually learning and freely share our chess insights with each other.
