Welcome to JHB Metro Chess

Where chess happens

About Us

Johannesburg Metro Chess is the region that represents chess players in the Johannesburg area as part of the Gauteng Province Chess. We are a handful of volunteers who assist clubs and players where possible in organizing tournaments. We strive to enhance the reach of chess within Johannesburg and to enable all to participate in chess at school, regional and national levels.

Chess is our passion!

In General
We do urge parents to become more involved, not just with Jhb Metro, but also get involved with the clubs.  It is easier to shout from the side than it is to assist in making it better.  For next year, Jhb Metro Exco plans to have more own-hosted events that will count towards qualification for next year.  But we need assistance at these events, from on-the day running, to venue organisation, to possible event sponsors.   I also need some volunteers to overhaul the website.
Thank you
