Twin Cities Chess Club (TCCC) is an organization dedicated to meeting the needs of today's chess students. It was started in an effort to foster better relationships between existing chess coaches and the students taking their classes. We feel that not enough connections are being made between the two groups.

Do you like chess and are proud of it? Then we suggest you stop on by and share your story or tell us how we could help you to improve. We are planning to organize weekly meetings and tournaments for school age students and would like to learn about your interest and opinion.

For more questions about our club please call Irina at 952.457.4800 or email at tcchessclub@gmail.com
