Chess is a sport.
It is an individual sport and a team sport.
Our players are athletes.

The West Louisville Chess Club

Our mission is the intellectual empowerment
and character development of Louisville youth
through the sport of team chess.

Our vision is to  become
the most successful urban chess program
in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

At the 17th Annual Queen City Classic,
a mid-West regional tournament in Cincinnati, Ohio,
the West Louisville Chess Club won the first place
team trophy in the Grade 4-6, under 800 rated section!

In February 2018, the West Louisville Chess Club
also won the 1st place team trophy
in the West Louisville Chess League tournament series!

Founded in May 2016, the West Louisville Chess Club continues building an active, enthusiastic chess program.
