Hamilton Chess Club

The Hamilton Chess Club, founded in 1982, is located in Hamilton in central New Jersey.

The Club meets Monday (sometimes Wednesday) evenings from 7:30 pm till 10:30 pm in the Switlik Park Pavilion.  (Formerly we met in the McManimon Building.)  Men, women, and children are all welcome.  Events are held throughout the year.  Results of recent events are posted on a separate web page.  Skittles are played every week.  Dues is $10 per year.  Chess sets, boards, clocks, and light refreshments are provided. 

Quads will be held on the third, fourth, or fifth Saturday of each month.

The Tournament Director is Ed Sytnik.

Weekly meetings are in the Switlik Park Pavilion in Yardville from 7:30 to 10:30 pm.  Enter the park from Fisher Place.  

Maintenance is ongoing at our former meeting site, the McManimon Recreation Center.  We will return to our old meeting site some time in 2024, maybe.
