My son was invited to a tournament that took place at the club on a weekend. He had a great time and was focused and critically thinking for hours straight - by choice - while the Xbox gathered dust. It was amazing. Definitely love the Temecula Chess Club!
Temecula Chess Club is a chess wonderland. In my 30 plus years of playing chess, I have never seen a more inviting place to play chess. The staff is friendly and courteous and the club has the best coaching, equipment, books, videos and more to offer an aspiring player. This club frequently hosts Chess Grandmaster Silmutaneous Exhibitions to include visits from GM Larry Christiansen, GM Varuzhan Akobian, and GM Melik Khachiyan. TCC is a non profit organization that is committed to serving its community and surrounding areas with chess education and enjoyment!
I have a schedule change at work coming soon and can't wait to Tuesday evenings at the club on a regular basis again. Best club I've ever attended and continues to get better.
Masters and Grand Masters are found here. Great place to improve my play and great people to have as friend and comrades!
I've been in 6-8 chess clubs in my life and the only one I'd be willing to travel 40 minutes to on a semi-consistent basis is the Temecula Chess Club. They have friendly staff, strong and friendly people, excellent equipment (which is provided to players for free), and a strong community vibe.
It is an opportunity to play challenging games with highly rated players in a quiet and safe environment. If you need help there are players who can teach you and help your rating go up. Technical support is also available if you need access to data bases and / or learning aids. Friendly players from all walks of life and all age groups are at the Temecula chess club to make your chess experience a great one. You owe it to yourself to come on in and play. Bring a friend!
