Chess Club

An Invitation to All Chess Players

If you have been playing chess for years or would simply like to learn this fascinating game, the Laguna Woods Village Chess Club has a place for you! 
Come and visit us at the club. All of the information you need is on this page.
   The Club meets in the Redwood Room on the first floor of the
Laguna Woods Village Community Center. The Community
   Center (see picture at right) is located at 24351 El Toro Road.
   It is near Gate #7, and next to the Ayres Hotel, and across
El Toro Road from the Stater Brothers grocery.
  The Club meets every Monday and Thursday (some holidays
  excepted) from
10 AM until 6 PM. Most members arrive after
  lunch and play until closing time.
  The Club is open to all Village residents and their guests.
  Yearly membership dues are a modest $10 for residents and $20 for guests. The dues are used to
  buy chess equipment, pay rent on the playing room, and cover miscellaneous expenses.  The club
  also asks members who play on Monday to chip in a dollar each time to cover room rent for the
  "extra day".
  Free lessons are cheerfully offered to beginners and less experienced players. Contact John Griffin
  as described below to arrange for a time and place.
  For any questions not answered above, please contact John Griffin, the club publicity chairman.
