Welcome to Arizona Chess Central 

At Arizona Chess Central our mission is to deliver the best chess opportunities for all scholastic chess players by providing high quality low cost tournaments, camps, instruction and activities.

Adult participation is welcomed and encouraged. We have sections available at every tournament to provide an opportunity for adult play as well as to strengthen the playing abilities of some of the stronger scholastic players.
