Learn and play chess in a social atmosphere. Pub Chess Toronto's founders are top players in the country.

We hold teaching sessions/lectures + casual/competitive play. Currently, we are re-located at "The Madison", which is in the heart of Annex and 2 mins walk from Spadina station. Our past location was "The Central", Markham & Bloor.

The point of our meet up is to popularize chess. Chess is known to be a very sophisticated game but we want to show the social and fun aspect of it! Come out, drink/eat, meet new people over the chess board!

If you are not sure whether you can or can't make it, please list "maybe" or "interested", it helps us to raise popularity in the event/club.
