The Newburyport Chess Club is one of the longest-running chess clubs in Massachusetts. The club provides a friendly-but-competitive, handicap-accessible site environment, easily reached from greater Boston, New Hampshire, and southern Maine. The club holds rated tournaments and casual play weekly, meeting on Tuesday nights, opening at 6:30 PM. Tournaments are scheduled to run monthly, typically starting on the first week of every month and ending on the last week. Members range from Beginners to Masters, providing challenges for players of all levels. All comers are welcome.

An update regarding the status of club operations, 6/25/2020 --
The Hope Church is not yet ready to have our group return. Reintroduction of Sunday services will come first, followed by a resumption of weeknight worship-related activities. Understandably, groups like ours that are not directly related to the church's worship activities are not a priority and will have to wait. Our hope is that our club will be able to return once the church is willing to host us, but that time has not yet come.
That said, I am pleased to note this Sunday in-person weekend services will resume at Hope. If the first step goes well, it will likely permit a progression to weeknight activities and at some point a return to club operations.
