Chess Club

About Chess Club

We are the Rio Grande Chess Club.  We are a social club that advocates for "The Game of Kings."  We play, we teach, and we compete.  Our team competes in the Albuquerque Schools Chess League throughout the school year and throughout the city culminating in the State Chess Tournament in the spring.  Although our team is competition oriented, we are also a club that is very friendly and welcoming. The Chess Club encourages any and all from Rio Grande High School to come play chess with us; students, faculty, staff are all welcome, regardless of skill level.   Also, did you know you can earn a Letter in Chess!
