Paradise Chess Club of SW Florida is a local group of chess enthusiasts that hosts casual, social chess events throughout the SW Florida region.

All ages and levels, from beginners to masters, are welcome and encouraged to attend. Participants under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

We typically hold weekly events in Naples and Marco Island, Florida.

Our mission is to create a fun, social, casual chess atmosphere for all people who are interested in the game of chess.

Chess boards & pieces are provided, but please bring your own, if possible, since our supplies are limited.

Some chess clocks will be available, too.

While our events are FREE, they typically are held at locations that offer food and beverages, so attendees are encouraged to purchase food and beverage items from our gracious host locations and are responsible for their own costs.

Current Weekly Meetups:

Most of our players have returned North for the summer season, so we don’t have any regularly scheduled events at this time. Check back every few months for updates.

Paradise Chess Club is an affiliate of the United States Chess Federation.
