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.
