Welcome to

ACL Chess Club


Games - Learning - Fun and Friends​

Chess Development is not complete without a chess club. We invite you to discover the Game of Chess. Learn the game and improve your skills through casual play and team tournaments. Chess Club meetings run from Monday to Friday 10 am-5 pm and Sat 10 am-3 pm. We have also provided fun workshop activities in between which you can find on the events page. All levels of experience are welcome.

Very Strong Club

To gain experience playing against strong competition, the club participates in provincial, regional and national competitions. We are the Western Cape Champions for 2015 and 2016 and there are many individual and team success stories. The club holds local tournaments throughout the year, so you can take part in that. While travelling for competitions, the players and their families have the opportunity to experience the diversity of this country. We’ve gone to many museums, attractions and important cultural and historic places in cities all across our nation and we would like you to be part of that.

Why join the ACL Chess Club?

Whether you join the club to play chess for fun at the Club Level (almost all of our team players started out that way), or take it to the next level and join the Team to participate in competitions, there are many benefits of playing chess. Members of our club have enjoyed making new friends, increased their self-confidence, and developed invaluable abilities to focus, think creatively, and problem solve. They’ve demonstrated self-reliance, personal pride, good sportsmanship, endurance, and improve their academic skills. Club coaches provide individual and group instruction.
