Gladstone Chess Club Inc was Incorporated in January 2012.
The Club caters for adult and junior players of all abilities, including those looking to learn the game.
Members meet every Tuesday night 5:30pm - 7:30pm for Social Games in Room 1.18/19 of the Martin Hansen Building at the University. Though additional activities are organised on an ad hoc basis. Some adults arrange to meet at other times due to work commitments.
Membership Fees are $100 per family, $70 for Adults & $50 for school age children per Calendar Year. Pro Rata after 30 June. This Fee also includes playing fees for social nights, so no further fees are payable when attending Social Nights.
Non Members pay $5 per Social Night, though everyone is welcome to come try out a night for free!
Tournament Fees vary and are noted on the tournament flyers.
In 2016, the club is establishing a regular coaching, particularly aimed at junior players. Chess has proven to be an activity which many children not only enjoy but which brings many benefits.
