Modbury Chess Club

Modbury Chess Club is a friendly chess club, meeting in Modbury North, in the north east of Adelaide, South Australia. We meet to play all kinds of chess, including Lightning (aka Blitz), Rated Interclub matches, Fixed Opening matches and more.

We also host frequent chess events such as tournaments and lectures from the masters. Stay tuned to our calendar to see what is coming up. Or even better, come join us and we'll tell you in person! Everyone is welcome and we'd love to see you for a game or three :)

Ok, so we don't have free tim-tams all the time, but we do have them occasionally!

Contact us or simply turn up at the club on Friday to join in the fun! Just check the calendar to make sure we're not on holidays!

Thanks to CypherBYTE for creating and managing our website! It will most likely be changing, so don't forget to check back later for more...
