Join us if you are from any of the following locations: North America as far as the Pacific Coast, Central and South America, Caribbean Islands, Iceland, Faroe Islands, Ireland, Wales, Scotland, England, west European countries with an Atlantic coastline, and northwest African countries with an Atlantic coastline. We also meet offline to play over-the-board chess games.

Our club meets weekly from 6 to 9 pm every Tuesday, including the summer months, and free visitor parking is available to club members. Instructions to help you find our building and club room are provided in the following images. Our club membership is free and open to chess players of all ages and skills. Visitors are always welcome! The Club has its own supply of chess sets and digital clocks for your games. Play casually, enter one of our active or ongoing tournaments, or just come and watch.

The Bluenose Chess Club operated in Halifax for many decades before moving to its current location at NSCC (Nova Scotia Community College) in Dartmouth. Although the exact date that it was established is unknown, some of our club’s “lost history” has been recovered by David Kenney, an organizer of the club since 1974. Information about the history of our club since the 1960s is provided at the end of this post.
