Chess Club Wageningen
Come hang out and play chess for fun at ‘de Doorbraak’ (Grintweg 324a) every Wednesday evening. Many of the about 90 adults fight it out on the chessboard starting from 8 pm until midnight. Regularly each evening one game is played adding to the club competition. Each week you will find yourself an opponent of your own strength. Additionally it is possible to join team competitions and/or follow chess training sessions. 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 neccesary to sign up before 5 pm on the Wednesday you like to play.
