Hello! Welcome to the Carleton College Chess Club website. The club meets once a week for all things chess related- normal, blitz, blind, bughouse, 4-ways, etc. If you don’t know how to play or just want to pick up some pointers, don’t hesitate to come learn.

Our goals as a club include:

  1. Having fun
  2. Getting better
  3. Competing in Tournaments
  4. Promoting chess at Carleton, especially though our annual Winter Open
  5. Expanding our connections with other colleges, clubs, and the Northfield community

We are currently meeting online, and play on a website called lichess.com. We are hoping to go in person possibly spring term of 2021, and if not, then fall term of 2022. If you have any questions, contact dongz@carleton.edu or satherz@carleton.edu
