One of the main advantages of being in a chess club is the help that it can provide to new players. Clubs are welcoming chess epicenters! It’s their way to grow interest in the game of chess. In addition to rated events, some clubs hold unrated tournaments, which give a new player experience with playing in a tournament setting, such as making recording moves, using a chess clock, and knowing chess etiquette and official rules.
