6700 Middle Fiskville Road (in the Bridge Center of Austin)

The club meets every Sunday night. Doors open at 6:00pm, games start at 6:30pm.

Membership is free of charge for the foreseeable future. Thanks to all who support our club and Austin chess in general!

We have offhand chess in our skittles room! Feel free to drop by during the evening if you would like to play casual games and/or observe the current event in progress.

Entries for events are accepted on the first night of the scheduled event on site at the club, 6:00pm to 6:25pm. We accept cash (please attempt to bring exact change), checks (make out to Drew Sarkisian), or credit cards. Online entries are also accepted (see online entry links for individual events). Please use online entries whenever possible to speed up the entry process the first night of a new tournament. Late entries are encouraged to enter online as well. If you have any questions / issues please send email to austinchessclub@gmail.com.

New players, please note: Swiss system events are NOT elimination events! You most likely will still get to play the next round even if you lost the previous round!

Be considerate of your fellow chess players during our standard Swisses! Email austinchessclub@gmail.com as soon as you know you need a bye for a round (cutoff time is 10:00am Sunday of the round). Even if you miss the cutoff, let us know as soon as possible. Thanks!

Send email to austinchessclub@gmail.com with generic queries about the club. Phone inquiries will not be answered. If you need to speak to us about an already scheduled game and time is of the essence, please call (512) 318-1881. If no one answers, leave a detailed message. Thank you.

Due to current circumstances, we've decided to close the club for a few weeks while we try to get more certainty as to the best course of action in the future. As more resources become available to deal with prevention and potential outbreaks, we'll adjust our schedule / activities accordingly. Thanks.
Note we are open March 15.

Sorry for the late notice. Seems that a bit of caution is a reasonable course. Since Drew will be travelling during this period it seems like a good time to take a break and evaluate the situation in Austin as it develops.
Thanks for your patience and understanding.
