The Ballaarat Mechanics’ Institute began hosting the Ballarat Chess Club 153 years ago, an event published in The Ballarat Star on Friday March 10, 1865. Since that time the club has moved around town to various locations, but since January 2016, we’ve come home and settled back into the Hooper Room.
Locals of all ages gather on Thursday evenings from about 6:30 to enjoy social and competitive chess, in the friendly and comfortable environment of the Hooper Room.
Membership for all juniors is free, and it is free for all to come and give it a tryout.
