Welcome to Wake Tech Chess!

If you are interested in chess, then the Chess Club is for you – whether you are a beginner, want to get better at chess, or would like to compete at a high level against US Chess Federation-rated opponents! Beginners will find a friendly, nurturing atmosphere in which to learn chess at our weekly meetings. More advanced players will find opportunities to get better and, if they so desire, a chance to compete against local and collegiate players. Members can also participate in community service. Consider this an invitation to come learn chess, or if you have what it takes, to try out for the Chess Team and play for Wake Tech in intercollegiate competition! Come visit us at a weekly meeting on either Main or North and join the fun and energy!
