New for 2022
Now you can find a chess game every Thursday evening in St. Catharines at the newly created Coach House Chess Club. And best of all, it's free.
From the free chess for kids that the DSBN provides as extra curricular to students to our Petitioning of Ottawa to proclaim a national "Chess Day", we are scholastic chess in Niagara.

Chess Park in St. Catharines
Did you know, Chess Nation petitioned the City of St. Catharines to dedicate this park with its checkered table tops to our own retired book seller, community activist and chess fan, Hannelore Headley?
An active site for chess during the summer months, it is pictured here with children from the Bishop`s Keep Chess Studio on a day trip.
This beautiful park with a marble water fountain is located across from the Montebello Park Rose Garden in downtown St. Catharines.
Chess sets are available from the UP House, seen in the photo for a small, refundable deposit.
