The Victoria Chess Club


Contact us at: VictoriaChessClub@gmail.com



The club meets at the Esquimalt Rec Center, 527 Fraser St. in the Kanaka room, 6:30pm-10:00pm every Wednesday


The club charges $5 table fees per night.   All equipment is supplied.



On the first Wednesday of each month, we hold a round of the club championship, known as the Gonnason Cup with the winner declared at the end of the year.  A round is two games with your opponent, one as white and one as black.   Time control is an active time control.


On the third Wednesday, we hold 2 rounds of a seasonal event (lasting for 4 months, 8 rounds in total).    One game against each opponent at an active time control.


Remaining wednesdays are casual chess (no formal event) although we may from time to time organize something.   Casual chess is always available on all Wednesdays.
