The Cumberland County Chess Club was started in 1973 and incorporated in 1978. Find out more about us.
We host two closed tournaments and three open tournaments each year. One of the closed tournaments is our Cumberland County chess Championship sponsored by the Cumberland County Bank; the winner’s name is engraved on a plaque that hang at Cumberland County Bank. The other closed tournament is scholastic and is sponsored by Highland Federal Savings and Loan. The tournament includes primary, elementary, junior high and high school sections. Each winner, each year, gets their name engraved on a plaque that hangs in Highland Federal Savings Bank.
The open tournaments are held in April, July and October. Each tournament has an open section and an amateur section.
