The Nashville Chess Center is currently closed again until it is deemed safe to resume normal activities. It seems like we are seeing an uptick right now and we do not want the NCC to be the cause of that any further. We will give you an update early next week on whether we can reopen for the following Friday.
Our Scholastic Chess Clubs are already up and running. 2nd Semester Online Courses are now open for registration:
Players are also welcome to join our online community by becoming a part of the Chess.com page for the NCC. Recommended links can be found at NCC Online & Live Streamers.
Recently, October 3rd was supposed to be our Gambit Gala IV, the NCC's annual birthday fundraiser. This year we turned 25 years old! Due to Covid, we are very sorry the event couldn't take place in person. Be on the lookout for a mailer to come to you and please consider a year-end donation. If you'd like to give, please visit our Donations Page for gifts under $1,000. Amounts higher than that, please send a check to NCC. As always, we appreciate any support but especially now!
During this current COVID-19 health crisis, the NCC is working hard to find creative ways to battle the economic fall out. We are now offering Lifetime NCC Memberships for a $1,000 contribution. Just click on the "Member Sign Up" tab to the left to register. Current members wishing to add Life Membership on to their existing membership, use the link in the upcoming events.
Scholastic Chess Programs
During the 2019-2020 school year, the Nashville Chess Center ran Chess Clubs in over 35 Middle-Tennessee public schools, charter schools, private schools, libraries and neighborhood programs. To learn more about beginning a program in your child's school or group, please email us and we will help you get it going.
Visit Scholastic Chess Clubs to check to see if your school is offering registration for the 2020 - 2021 school-year or join one of our 'Open to All Kids' clubs. NCC is working hard to provide as many Hybrid Chess Clubs as possible for our kids!
Donations via the website are available! Please help support our goal to give every Nashville child the opportunity to gain the educational benefits of learning chess in their school! You can use the following link to access our Donations Page.
