The Chess Club at UT Austin seeks to promote chess for both amateurs as well as competitive players.
For players looking to learn more about the game or brush up on their skills, the chess club offers lessons and interactive commentary by strong players (experts and masters). For stronger players, it is a chance to train to represent UT Austin in the Pan-American Intercollegiate Championship, a tournament we regularly send team members to.
No membership fees or commitment are necessary. Check the calendar for any additional updates.
In addition to this page, our Facebook page and Discord server will provide the latest information and updates. Feel free to message the Facebook page or contact UTAustinChess@gmail.com for questions or more information.
