Croydon Chess offers a fun and family-friendly environment suitable for chess players of all ages and skill levels.
We have a tiered coaching program for our junior players and coaching nights for our senior players.
We have regular tournaments for our Junior and Adult players ranging from fun events, such as Blitz (all moves in 5 minutes), through to more serious events such as the Croydon Open.
Croydon Chess is affiliated with Chess Victoria which, in turn, is an affiliate of the Australian Chess Federation.
