Chess Mates is a dedicated chess school and club.


    Our students and chess tournament players come from all of New Jersey and New York. Tournaments are open to members of the club and non-members.

    We welcome new students to our chess academy programs and offer lessons to all ages and skill levels. You can enjoy casual play along with membership benefits and expert instruction. Training is available in a classroom setting or one-on-one.  We also run chess camps during the summer and school breaks.

     If you are just learning to play chess or are looking to advance your skill level, we welcome you!  

     International Grandmaster Leonid Yudasin and Chess Mates' owner Arthur Macaspac are available for lessons and to mentor you.
