Chess Club Wageningen
Every Thursday, the Vredehorst, houses Chess Club Wageningen. Using the 64 squares as their battlefield, about 75 adults and 35 youth members fight it out on the chessboard. Youth members play from 06:30 pm to 8:00 pm. They start with chess lessons and continue to play games of chess with equally strong kids. From 7:15 pm until 8:00 pm there is the ‘brugcompetitie’ which is open for adults to play as well. Adults play chess from 8:00 pm until midnight. Regularly one game per evening is played for the club competition. Each week you will find an opponent of your own strength. In addition it is possible to join team competitions and/or follow training sessions. And next to the game of chess, socializing is also an important part of Chess Club Wageningen. You will find many chess players at the bar, over a drink, having a chat or analyze their game together. You are most welcome to visit the club and play the first four times for free. In order to match you with an opponent player of your strenght it is important to sign up before 17:00 pm on the Thursday you like to play.
