The Coronavirus necessitated a year-long pause in our chess events. In the spirit of outdoor chess, we are restarting chess gatherings for the summer 2021 in an outdoor setting. Club events will be held outdoors at various city parks about twice a month through the end of September. Check out our club calendar for dates and venues.
Meet other local chess players to play the world's oldest strategy game. Anyone who enjoys chess (any age or level) is welcome to play for challenge, fun, and skill improvement. Online chess is great, but there is no substitute for meeting new people and playing on a real chess board. Join us if you play the game at any level or would like to learn.
Players can play any style of chess they mutually agree to (blitz, rapid, standard, etc.). We have a dedicated chess gathering that gets together at 2:00 PM on most Sundays at various venues in the Bellingham area. The definitive schedule of chess events is indicated on the club events calendar.
Chess players are offered the opportunity to meet and play with other chess players of all skill levels who generally come from Bellingham and the surrounding Whatcom county area. These casual games are free ... just come and go within the designated hours (2:00 PM to 5:00 PM). Join the Bellingham Knights Chess Club. There is no cost to join.
