Meeting Times and Location

The Eastside Chess Club meets Wednesday nights from 5:00 pm to 8:15 pm at the Tucson Jewish Community Center (JCC) located on River Rd. and Dodge Blvd.


By joining the Southern Arizona Chess Association, you automatically become a member of the Eastside Chess Club.


Every non-JCC player must pay the site fee, even those who do not get paired for rated games.  Parents and friends who accompany players, but do not play chess themselves, are not expected to pay.

Note: The fees go directly to the JCC for the use of the site.


The Eastside Chess Club maintains club ratings and game history for all members.  If you would like to play a rated game there are two sessions:

Session 1: Sign-in 5-5:30 pm, begin at 5:30 pm

Session 2: Sign-in 6:30-7 pm, begin at 7:00 pm

Time control G/30 (game-in-30 minutes).  Some players prefer to play only skittles (pick-up games).

Chess sets, boards, clocks and score sheets are provided by the club for both club games and skittles.

Occasional blitz tournaments are held, along with other special events, such as an annual club championship.

Try it out!!

Visitors and guests are welcome to come check out the club, but we strongly encourage players to join if they will be coming more than two or three times a year.
