Upcoming scholastic chess tournaments in New York City!

Dear Parents,

 
tournament participation is important to your young players, so they can practice the skills acquired at lessons. While I’m still arranging the dates for my own tournaments, I thought it would be useful to share the information about the upcoming events elsewhere in the city.
 
My friend Ian West, who is a coach at the PS 139 school in Ditmas Park, is organizing a free tournament on Sunday next week (4/27) . Please click here to register. There will be rated and unrated sections available, so all levels of players are welcome.
 
Chess Educators organization has tournaments coming up for you on Saturday next week (4/26) in Jackson Heights and on May 18th in Manhattan. Please click here for the details.
 
There is a tournament on Upper East Side at PS 6 on Sunday next week (4/27). Please click here for more information.
 
Chess in the Schools organization’s tournament calendar can be found here with tournaments scheduled for April and May.
 
Marshall Chess Club in Greenwich Village hosts tournaments every day- while most of them are for pretty advanced players, I would encourage you to check out their calendar – playing in an under-1600 section on Saturdays or Mondays should be a very good experience for ambitious scholastic players.
 
There is a wide variety of opportunities for kids to play in New York City- please take advantage of them and have fun!
 
Best Regards,
Simon Rudowski

Scholastic chess students with their ‘hardware’.

Playing chess is fun for everybody. It’s even more fun when you play well and win. Below are some of the images of my students happily sporting their trophies and medals won at recent tournaments. The scholastic chess season is in full swing, there is a tournament almost every weekend at this time of the year. Stay tuned- I’m working on organizing new exciting events for kids and adults alike- coming soon!
