About The North Dakota Chess Hall Club

 The Chess Club of ND, is widely recognized as the premier chess facility in the town and one of the best in the state.

This 1,000-square-foot, chess center features a tournament playing hall, classroom, and casual play area. But we’re more than just a Chess Hall. We take a multi-level approach to promoting the game of chess:

  • We spread the educational benefits of chess to hundreds of students in schools and community centers across ND, primarily through afterschool programming.
  • We’re a member-based chess hall where players of all skill levels and abilities, from beginner to expert, attend our free classes, participate in tournaments, attend lectures, take private lessons and more.
  • We promote chess at the top levels with State events and matches between the world’s top players.

We opened our doors in July of 2009, and since that time ND has become widely recognized as the emerging chess center of the country. Membership to the club starts at just $20/month, and we currently have more than 100 active members. We’re open seven days a week for casual play, and we also offer free classes and lectures, weekly tournaments, private lessons, merchandise discounts and more.
