The perfect time to get involved with Newark Chess Club is NOW.

The Newark Chess Club is a Tax Exempt, Non Profit Organization incorporated in New Jersey. We teach strategic theory and thought through chess, creates mentor/mentee relationships for adults and children, produces the Newark High School Chess Tournament, and is a haven for people of all ages to enjoy playing chess in an environment specifically designed for the development of the youth, the engagement of the mind, and the advancement of the game.

The goals of the organization are to develop the skill of strategic theory and practice in Newark’s youth ages 8-15 and to be the premier place in Newark for chess players to come play the game, exchange ideas, and fellowship with other chess players, enthusiasts, and fans, and develop, host, and maintain an annual Newark High School Chess Tournament.

The objectives of the organization are to develop the minds of young people through the game of chess and to provide a home for Newark’s chess community.
