Växjö Chess Club – A short introduction

Welcome to Växjö Chess Club (Växjö Schackklubb)! In the following, you will find some basic information about our club.

Club play

Seniors meet on Tuesday nights from 6pm on, youth at 5pm. The schedule can be found here.

During the year, there are several competitions, e.g., club championship in tournament play (KM), rapid chess (snabbschack), blitz chess (blixt), as well as smaller tournaments (Fyrklövern, Procivitas Open). It is worthwhile to stop by even if you don’t participate in a particular event, e.g., the club championships – there are always other players around with whom you can play ”just for fun”. Youth meetings are on Tuesdays from 5pm on.

Teams

We participate with two teams in different leagues. Our first team plays in Superettan, the 2nd highest national league. Our second team plays in Division I West.

Membership fee

Membership fees 2016 for the whole year: adults 700 SEK; senior citizen and students up to 25 years 500 SEK; people up to 20 years 250 SEK.
