About the Greater Toledo Area Chess Club

The Greater Toledo Area Chess Club aims to promote the game of chess and we host monthly Swiss tournaments on the second Saturday of every month, as well as the occasional invitational events.

We wish to expand the popularity of chess in the area and with increased interest, we would like to begin having more tournaments to include quick and dual rated events, with the long-term goal of hosting FIDE rated tournaments.


Summer Camp Dates

Summer camp dates for this year will be posted in the coming weeks. If your child is looking for an introductory camp to attend, please consider some of the dates, times, and locations when they are posted.

Chess Night at Biggby

It has been a while since an update has been posted. I would like to remind players that Friday evenings are the current meeting night for chess at Biggby Coffee (3160 Markway Road in Toledo). The usual time is between 7 and 9pm, but some of us tend to stay until closing at 11. I would recommend checking back for updates for possible time changes or a calendar for the days some of us with be attending.

Club Meeting Night

A few of us have decided to attempt a Friday night gathering at the Bigby Coffee in Cricket West from 7PM-11PM. In many of the previous Friday evenings, we’ve had local experts Paul Maginley, Bill Gorham and Ryan Clayton, studying positions and the classic Clayton-Doran blitz duels. Please come out and join us on Friday to watch, play casually, play blitz or study positions.
