Silicon Valley Chess Club is an organization offering chess tournaments, lessons and other chess events online and at various locations across the globe. Even though our current form of online chess club was started on 13th March 2020, the ideas of our club started way back. We were originally named Foster City Chess Club. We had our first USCF tournament on December 20, 2019, and had the idea of starting a chess club in September 2019. Also, SVCC became an affiliate of USCF (United States Chess Federation) on October 31, 2019.
