    San Gabriel Valley Chess Club meets in Altadena!

    San Gabriel Valley Chess Club (SGVCC) was founded in March of 2020 as a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of the game of chess. We hold tournaments rated by the United States Chess Federation on Tuesday evenings at our Altadena location. On this website you can see our calendar of events, past results, and view news about the Club. Both adults and kids play in the same tournaments and all persons who play must be SGVCC members. But anyone is welcome to drop by and check things out before deciding to join. We also have an area set aside for those who just want to play a casual game of chess. So, whatever your chess interest, we hope to see you soon.
