Q300 has partnered with NYChessKids to host a series of tournaments at the Lower Division (location) throughout the year, as well as “virtual home” tournaments starting in March 2020.

Tournament Schedule for 2021-2022:

  1. Sunday Oct 24 RESULTS – Astoria Park Outdoor Tournament (unrated)
  2. Sunday Dec 12 INFO/REGISTER – Q300 Online Grade Championships (unrated)

These events have been the starting point for many of our students in the past, a place where they learned about competition for the first time. The setting is familiar and stress-free – the kids get to play a real tournament while feeling completely at home. Players are grouped into sections by strength, so beginners will not have to play strong players. If your child has never played a tournament before, this is the right event for them – the “No Score” or “Novice” section will be perfect to start.

If you have any questions, please email us at Q300ChessTeam AT gmail DOT com, or just come by the next tournament – we will be happy to give you pointers. All Q300 community members are welcome – this is a very social event!
