Please email us at if you want to volunteer.  We hope to see you.

Chess Club Meetup days:

For these Fridays, there will be a rated blitz tournament ($5 fee for non-members) alongside other events. Join us for the tournament or just come in and play.  



We are a small group of chess enthusiasts that gather regularly to learn and play.  We welcome players of all levels ranging from beginners to masters and all age ranges.

Our mission is to create a welcoming environment for all chess players and promote growth and collaboration.

You can find us at the Rockville Science Center, located in 36C Maryland Ave, Rockville, MD every Monday from 6.30pm to 9:30pm. 

We hope to uplift the playing strength of everyone who comes by. We help all our players play in USCF-rated events which we hope to organize regularly on a cost-recovery basis. 

We value respectful dialogue and a spirit of mutual growth in all players within our club.

Year 2022 in Review

FM Luke Wong has been leading weekly analysis sessions on Mondays and Fridays at the Rockville Science Center. We celebrated the conclusion of our first action event on Apr 30, 2022, which we've organized to help our players get an initial rating. We will be having a series of classical quads in the near future.

On 23 September 2022, a group of us visited New York City on a chess pilgrimage. We played the hustlers at the Washington Square Park and Union Square, visited Marshall Chess Club and the Chess Forum, a shop that specialises in chess supplies.
