On occasion we play in-person or on-line friendly matches against other chess clubs. The aim is not to thrash one another but to have fun and get to know other players and clubs outside of Jamaica Plain. The number of boards and the time controls will be determined prior to the match. The hope is play both home and away matches. The winner of the match is determined by total score and who plays white (if one game per board) on the top board is determined by a flip of a coin and the team captain. Games are unrated.

If you are a club and would like to challenge JP Chess, or be challenged, please reach out to us by email. The preference is for an in-person match.

We are presently in early phase or organizing matches against other clubs.


  • MIT Chess Club - early phase of organizing (probably mid September)

  • Boylston Chess  - will be in the fall once BCF move in to their new location (probably mid-late October)


Watch this space for more information and registration once dates and locations have been set.
