The Alondra Park Chess Club is offering group chess lessons and games for Juniors age 7 to 12 on Mondays 6:30 to 8:30 starting January 2024.
Our regular tournaments are held Wednesdays from 6:15 to 8:30. We play typically 5 or 6-Round Swiss tournaments, with a time control of game in 55 minutes with a 5 seconds delay. One each evening one round of the tournament is played. About 30 to 40 players attend our tournaments. Players can choose between 2 sections - a " Junior" section intended for juniors, beginners and players up to a USCF rating of 1000 and an "Open" for players above a rating of 1000.
We meet in the Community Room at Alondra Park at 3850 Manhattan Beach Blvd, Lawndale CA. The building is located on Manhattan Beach Blvd approximately 0.2 miles east of the Prairie Ave intersection. The entrance to the parking lot right next to the Community Room can easily be missed, especially at night or when cars are parked along the street. Link to Alondra Community Regional Park website.
