Our History

The Glen Allen Chess Club was organized in 2010 by two avid chess players in search of a local chess club. When they could not find one, they founded one. They wanted a place where people could meet up and play friendly game of chess without the worries that came with tournaments or rated games. Today, the club is aided by two additional players who believe in the club.

Friendly Games. No Worries.
