Introducing The Toowoomba Chess Club

The Toowoomba Chess club was first established in 1872 and has a rich history hosting the 1986 Australian Championships.

The club supports a growing enthusiasm for chess in the area from people of all ages, with a large number of school students participating in annual chess competitions through the schools every year.

We also proudly host the CAQ endorsed event for Queensland, the Darling Downs Open which attracts players of high rank from around the state and further afield.

Currently we host a regular Friday night club gathering for adults and children and host nine different local tournaments throughout the year away from the club.
