Group Texting: In order to improve communication with the players we have setup a group texting program. We will send out occasional announcements using this service. You are free to subscribe to these announcements by texting "AddMe" to 619-762-4377. Do not confuse this with the club's phone number! It's different.

Facility Operating Hours: The Balboa Park location has reopened. All playing sessions are at that location (2225 6th Avenue @ Ivy) for the Wednesday (7 PM) and Friday (6:30 PM) Jedi Knights scholastic program. Through the end of June it is also the location for the Saturday Gambito. The club is only open during scheduled playing sessions.

Wednesday Night: Tournament play is back at the club (in Balboa Park at 6th & Ivy).

Saturday: Although most Gambitos will now be at the club there are two alternate playing sites for the weekly four round rapid Gambito tournament. Those locations and their dates will be listed when needed. Entry fee for most Saturdays is $25 (Including $5 to cover the cost of the room). However, the first Saturday of the month is $30 (the Super Gambito). 

Registration is from 10:00 to 10:25 (if you arrive after 10:25 and want to play in round one there is an additional $5 fee). First round is at 10:30. Call the club's number 619-75-CHESS to register early. 

Friday Night: Jedi Knights is an excellent program for kids. This program meets in Balboa Park and runs from 6:30pm-9:00pm and costs $10 per student per session.
