Chess in the Park: Eastern Market Metro Park

The U.S. Chess Center, in partnership with Barracks Row Main Street, is pleased to present a FREE chess tournament at Eastern Market Metro Park.  Students in grades 2-8 that know the real rules of chess and understand tournament etiquette are invited to participate in a friendly (and free) chess competition on Saturday, June 4th from 10:00am until 1:00pm.  There is no cost to participate in this tournament and students may play one or more games.  Space is limited, however, so please register in advance and arrive at 10:00am to ensure your place.  Drop-ins and on-site registration will be allowed; however, we can only accommodate a maximum of 40 players at a time.

There will be areas where families may wait during the games, but there will not be space for spectators in the playing area.
