About Us

The Columbia Chess Club is an affiliate of the USCF and meets each Thursday evening at  Firefly Toys and Games  on 736 St. Andrews Rd Columbia, Sc 29210.

The club meets from 7:00 - 10:00 every week. We have both Regular Rated and Quick Rated tournaments with an occasional casual night. There is limited space for casual play and socializing for those that do not wish to play in the tournament.

The club also meets most Mondays from 6:00-8:30 at the St Andrews Regional Library for casual play.

For more information check the 
Club Information page or the Discussion Board.

Membership dues are $10 yearly, $5 for each additional family member. USCF membership is recommended and it is required for Rated play. Members receive reduced entry fees into Cola Chess Club events and New Members receive free entry into their first weekly tournament.

We have regular rated play with a five round weekly tournament with rounds beginning at 7:30. We also have Quick Tournaments and Casual nights occasionally. See the
Tournament page for full details.

You do not have to be a member of the Club to come out and play. Beginners are welcome
and USCF members can play in the rated events and non members are welcome to come
out and socialize or play casual games.
