The Citadel Chess Club is open to all Citadel students, faculty, staff, and their family. We meet during the school year on alternate Mondays in Thompson 303 at lunch to play and discuss chess. Players at all ability levels are welcome, even if you are new chess and would like to learn.

Our Monday meetings generally consist of a box lunch, generally followed by a short chess-related activity. We then break into pairs for friendly scrimmages.
