Waterville Chess Club

Waterville, Maine

A REM Community Initiative

We meet every Monday night (since November 11th, 2019) at 31 Temple Street, Waterville (the REM Center, across the street from the Lebanese Cuisine restaurant) from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. On street parking or easy walk from the Concourse.

We will be 'open for business' on President's Day!

Club Meets On Presidents Day

We also occasionally play informally at these locations by appointment during the day:

By popular request, I have started maintaining a contact list so members can play each other during the week between club meetings on Monday night. If you would like to share your contact information with other members, just let me know and I will update the list (which is shared with those on the list). Members on the list can contact each other directly to arrange a time and place to play chess.

Included here under the "Featured", "Recent", and "Archive", tabs are just a few of our own games from the club; more to come in the future (games with Anna, Arnold, Glenn, Isaac, Kevin, Ray, Ben, Steve, Evan, John, Mark and Pete - victories and losses). Soon I will index the games by Chess Opening and by Opponent. Hopefully that will make it easier to find what we are looking for when we want to research past games.

We don't record all our games, but we encourage recording games and playing with a chess clock [not required for casual games]. We welcome players of all strengths. Currently we have several chessboards, but feel free to bring your own chessboard, pieces and chess clock if you have them [we are a little short on chess clocks at the moment].
