The  2023 San Antonio City Championship took place June 9 – 11. ALL USCF members are welcome to participate. The tournament offered 3 competitive sections (top section was FIDE rated), guaranteed prizes, and was limited to the first 100 players. 

The Austin Chess Club has a new home and is now meeting every Saturday afternoon! Attendance is open to anyone wishing to meet others and play casual and/or rated chess games in person. The new Austin Grandmaster Chess Academy is also offering In-Person and Online Trainings,  monthly tournaments as well as regular open play opportunities.

And there are lots of wonderful out of town events being offered all over our great state.  San Antonio’s Complete Chess is meeting regularly, hosting a variety of OTB events. The Waco Chess Club has begun hosting events as well. Virtual events are also going strong! Central Texas thanks you for your participation!  Please check out Texas Chess Association’s calendar for other chess opportunities, both online and OTB!
