Welcome to 2017!

Updated January 2nd, 2017

Happy New Year to all our players and members!

Upcoming Events

We are looking forward to a full year of chess events – the 2017 Calendar has already been made available, and details for individual events will be added to this site as they are finalised. January is already looking busy with Blitz, Rapid and Allegro tournaments coming up!

Annual General Meeting

The SACA AGM will be held on Sunday the 12th of February at the Chess Centre. Delegates of clubs are encouraged to attend, as well as anybody looking to assist us with organising and running events.

Reminder to Clubs and Coaches

A list of clubs and coaches in SA is maintained here – please let us know at webmaster@sachess.org.au if any of those listings are outdated or incomplete.

We are also happy to include details of club-run events on the SACA website, provided that they are open to all members of the public (i.e. entry is not limited to club members or age-restricted, etc.) and that the events are significant (not just weekly meetups, etc.).

On that note, if you have any updates or corrections to the information posted, or simply to comment on what you’d like to see on the website, feel free to send an email to.
