Who we are and What we do

The Tasmanian Chess Association (Inc.) is a not for profit organisation and is the governing body of the game of chess in Tasmania.  We are an Association of affiliated chess clubs, club-based members, junior members and individual members.

The TCA is affiliated with the Australian Chess Federation (ACF), which in turn is a member of the World Chess Federation (FIDE).

We organise a range of tournaments around the state of Tasmania and are responsible for awarding the official title of Tasmanian Chess Champion in a range of different time controls.
