The Chess Club is for anyone who enjoys chess, not only for those who wish to compete in the competition. We welcome all students to play and enjoy!
The club meets after school on Fridays in Term One, finishing at 4.00pm. From the members of the club, teams are selected to compete in the Metropolitan Sydney Chess Competition, which starts in Term Two and runs into the following term.
There are three levels for teams: Junior (Years 7 and 8), Intermediate (Years 9 and 10) and Senior (Years 11 and 12). This provides opportunities to boys of all levels and abilities. If a team is successful in the first section of the competition, which is for the south-west Sydney area, they progress into the finals; playing winning schools from the other metropolitan areas. St Gregory's has won or been runner-up on several occasions in the south-west area competition.
