Due to the current COVID-19 situation, chess offerings in our area are limited. If you wish to advertise your chess event, please contact us. Thank you for your patience and for your continued support of chess in Austin!

Welcome to the new look for Austin Chess Tournaments. After over a decade of operation, the old web server gave up during the pandemic, forcing us to create a new site. As always this will be your best source for information about Central Texas chess events. We are adding content to the site daily. Same people behind the scenes, just a new look.

The first major scholastic tournament of the new school year has been scheduled! The  2022 fall NYOS Scholastic Chess Tournament takes place on October 15! The tournament will offer an open section as well!  Register today!

The Texas Chess Association will host the 2022-23 Texas State Scholastic Online Quick Chess Championships online on October 29th. Players competed in one of 11 sections.

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. 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! After looking at our list of local offerings, please check out Texas Chess Association’s calendar for other chess opportunities, both online and OTB!

Please consider supporting local events (camps, tournaments, etc) whenever the opportunities present themselves! Responding quickly to new opportunities is the only way we are going to keep chess opportunities in our local area.
