RVA Pieces
The Richmond Chess Club

Join Richmond, Virginia's chess club, RVAPieces to play chess, meet new friends, and have fun!

About our Events

Meetup - Our most common event. We get together at a Richmond area park, restaurant, or bar to play chess, socialize, and have fun! Games are friendly, casual, and unrated. A good opportunity to meet your next best chess friends.

Kids Group Lessons - We provide free group lessons for kids (and parents) of all ages and skills that includes an instructional talk and a play session. These are hosted on Saturday afternoons at the Richmond Public Library.

Tournaments - We periodically host unrated tournaments, but are hoping to begin hosting rated events in the near future. A great opportunity to compete in a structured setting and earn bragging rights!

What to Bring

For any of our events, we encourage you to bring a chess board, pieces, and a clock if you have them. We try to provide equipment for everyone, but it's always helpful to have extra gear on hand. Need to find chess equipment? Visit US Chess sales.
