Membership in the North Little Rock Chess Club is open to people of all ages and playing ability.  There are no membership fees in which to participate.  Your only expense will be when you play in one of our tournaments and that will be generally inexpensive.  Our tournaments are Swiss style and round robins.  Even if you don't live in the North Little Rock, Sherwood, Jacksonville, Little Rock or Cabot areas but are willing to attend, feel free to join.  All are welcome!

People interested in learning chess for the first time will also benefit by receiving mentoring and advice on learning and playing the game of chess.

Fill out the following form and click on Apply and you are a member right away.  If you wish to be notified of all new events that are scheduled, please check the box 'Notify me of new events.'  Then visit our Facebook page (click on the icon at the bottom of the screen) and join the group so you can communicate with other members outside of our normal meetings.

If you do plan on playing rated tournaments you must be a member of either the United States Chess Federation (USCF) or Chess Express Ratings (CXR) and there are links at the bottom of the screen and the Arkansas Chess Association (ACA) for state and other events but you can join without them at this time.  When you do join the USCF, CXR and/or ACA simply send us an email with your name and ID number from that organization and we'll update your profile so you can then start getting your rating and enjoy the tournament experience.  All tournaments are open to everybody.  Younger players can attend in their own division without membership in the USCF, CXR and/or ACA but will not be in rated play.  Since membership in CXR is 'free' (premimum at $7 a year and highly recommended because otherwise there's a $1.50 charge to play in tournaments plus extra features on their website) all younger players should join CXR and you can join when you show up for the event.
