Temecula Chess Club is a chess wonderland. In my 30 plus years of playing chess, I have never seen a more inviting place to play chess.

My son was invited to a tournament that took place at the club on a weekend. He had a great time and was focused and critically thinking for hours straight - by choice - while the Xbox gathered dust. It was amazing. Definitely love the Temecula Chess Club!
