ABOUT

Our Roots

The Rockland County Chess Club is driven by a single goal; to bring the joy of chess to our community.  We strive to build a community of players of all strengths and ages who are interested in learning and playing.  Our club offers both serious rated tournament games (see our calendar) and casual games.

“It is my style to take my opponent and myself on to unknown grounds. A game of chess is not an examination of knowledge; it is a battle of nerves.”
