St Kilda East & Caulfield Chess Club

The Club has moved to online format due to COVID19. All paid members will also receive in their mailbox positions from grandamsater games with outlines of strategic principles applicable to those positions. I expect most players to play the move a grandmaster played. Online chess tournaments will be on the folloing dates. They are conducted on www.chess.com Please look for St Kilda Caulfield Chess Club. Tournaments start at 7:30pm. The membership fee is $40 until the end of 2020. Bank Westpac BSB:033169 Account#:419959

I recommend private online chess coaching, especially for juniors. This can be available at similar cost to group coaching if you wish. For more information please go to chess coaching

Welcome to the St Kilda East & Caulfield Chess Club website

"Currently there are only 17 Australian Chess Federation affiliated chess clubs in all of Victoria. In Melbourne's south eastern suburbs there is only one chess club and it does not meet during week.To fill the gap I am proud to announce the creation of St Kilda East/Caulfield Chess Club. The club is a non profit association which will meet in the City of Port Phillip's Alma Rd Neighbourhood House." (Dr. Ronald Pose, president of St Kilda East/Caulfield Chess Club).
