Tuesday Night Action gives players the chance to play rated chess during the week. Every Tuesday one rated game will be played. After 5 weeks/rounds the tournament is submitted to the USCF to be rated. TNA is a great way for players to prepare and stay in shape for weekend tournament play.

There is no penalty for not coming on the weeks you are unavailable.  Come on a weekly basis as you are available.


All In-Person Gatherings Postponed Due to COVID-19 VIRUS
