Our club, as private and self-financed sports association, plays for the first time in the Liga of Tenerife, where 39 teams are presents with hundreds of players.

In the 3rd day of the LIGA the magnificent 4 got a full victory. Keep it up guys!!

Moreover, our first social tournament started last January 24th, with a nice surprise, the entry of the very young Venezuelan WFM Roxanny Matute Escobar. Welcome Roxanny!

Last, but not least, we are organizing a great International Open Tournament, at the end of next June. It will take place in an extraordinary location in the Canary Islands and with rich prizes, gifts and many new ideas and initiatives for all the participants, tourists and locals.

The goal is to make the new tournament Orillas de Mar (this will be the name that means seashores in English) one of the most requested, fascinating and important in Spain and Europe. Therefore, not to be missed by all chess players!

Thanks Casa Fuerte of Adeje, the most surprising and historical site of the Canary Islands, for hosting Arona Chess Club and its most important events.

Chess lessons continue every Tuesday (except during the social tournaments) and Thursday.

Playing sessions continue every Friday from 17.00 to 19.00, except during the social tournaments. For detailed info and prizes click the button below.

In the menu above you can find many info and news, but now let us introduce ourselves.

We are a private chess club which comes to occupy a space among the sports clubs of the municipality of Arona. Our objective is to make known the magnificent world of chess.

The Arona Chess Club is currently the only one in the municipality of Arona and, along with another in Playa San Juan, the only ones in the southern region of Tenerife. In the northern area there are more than 15 clubs.

Firstly, we intend to give coverage to Arona fans, so that they have a space where they can play. Secondly, we want to make chess known among the boys and girls. Thirdly and most importantly, we want to attract tourists visiting the south of Tenerife. The possibility of playing chess, after spending a full relaxing day, become another good reason to choose Tenerife for your vacation, correct?

An important activity will be our participation in study classes for children.

The Arona Chess Club inauguration took place on May 27, 2022 at the stunning OA Beach Club of the Hotel Europe Villa Cortes, in Playa de Las Américas – Tenerife. The event was a simul exhibition with WFM Adhara Rodriguez Redondo fighting against 28 players of any age!
