SACA thanks everyone for their understanding of the situation and hopes to see everyone at the chess board soon!

Due to the ongoing concerns of the COVID-19 situation, as well as government regulations and recommendations, SACA’s closure will be extended to at least the 28th of April.

We hope that the impacts of this crisis will lessen in the coming weeks, and we will be able to open our doors once more in the near future.
