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

  • We meet at 6:00pm – 8:30pm every Thursday at Beyond Games & Hobby.
  • We also have an online tournament at 6:30pm on the first Tuesday of every month: A one hour blitz tournament on lichess.

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.

We have a good balance of casual nights and officially rated tournament games.

If you have any questions, please contact Dylan Iwach on our Facebook group (or Michael Molenaar through the contact form).
