Tournament Opportunities

During this time of COVID with most of the over-the-board play shut down, here are a few of the available tournaments that can be completed online.

Typically, this page houses a fairly comprehensive list of selected tournaments, mostly in the mid-Atlantic, that are suitable for our players.  You should also check out the Virginia Chess Federation page and click on “Clearinghouse” for upcoming tournaments in our region.   You can also check out the VSCA calendar here for smaller events and be sure to click through all the tabs.
