Team match vs. San Diego junior club! 

     On Feb 16th, 2019 at 1pm we will be playing a team match vs. a junior club from the San Diego area.  Our 12 best players age 12 and under will take on theirs in 3 quads of 4 round G/30 rated mini matches to win back the trophy taken from us by coach Lam's squad several years ago.  We will be playing again every 3 months to reawaken the tradition.  Roster will be set at the conclusion of the last Junior Joust tourney in January.  If interested, contact us and try to make the team! Criteria for team selection is based on Junior Joust performances.  

March Of The Queens!  Special event on March 30th at 3pm.

    To celebrate and encourage our fantastic girl junior players Temecula Chess Club will have an exclusive event just for them.  This tournament will be 4 rounds of rated G/15 games in the swiss system.  We will provide a generous prize fund and a fantastic venue to strengthen their development.  More details will be posted as the event approaches.  Long live the queens!
