The Nashville Chess Center does not have a timetable at this moment about our re-opening. We will continue to follow the guidance of our medical professionals in the area, the CDC and our state and local governments about when it will be wise to resume normal weekly activities.  In the meantime, we ask you to join our online community by becoming a part of the page for the NCC. 


During this current COVID-19 health crisis, the NCC is working hard to find creative ways to battle the economic fall out. We are now offering Lifetime NCC Memberships for a $1,000 contribution. Just click on the "Member Sign Up" tab to the left to register. As always, we appreciate any support but especially during these tough times! Current members wishing to add Life Membership on to their existing membership, use the link in the upcoming events.

Please stay safe everyone and we hope to see you back over the board soon!

Could there be anything better to do than strengthen your chess during the COVID-19 quarantine? Obviously, we hope everyone is safe and healthy and this all passes and we can be back at the board face-to-face before long, but in the meantime, we will be utilizing and Twitch to keep our chess community together continuing to grow and improving. Here is a "HOW TO?" on joining the community.

STEP 1: Make a account - it is free!
STEP 2: Login!
STEP 3: Go to the Menu bar that is on the left hand side of the browser - CLICK ON "CONNECT" (It looks like little, white message bubbles)
STEP 4: When you drag the cursor over the "CONNECT" menu - it will bring up a sub-menu that says "CLUBS" (It has two little emoji guys)
STEP 5: Type in "Nashville Chess Center" and request to be added to the group. I have made the group private now and will be cleaning it up to ensure we do not get any inappropriate ads or folks on the page.
STEP 6: On that same, original menu bar - Go to "LIVE CHESS" and mess around with and become acquainted with the site.  
STEP 7: Make a account - it is also free!
