Coachella Chess Club Welcomes You

Welcome to our site!   We are always planning something new and exciting, and hope you’ll join us!

*NOTE*   Some features on the CCC website are best viewed on a Desktop or Laptop computer - especially the Game Breakdown column as Diagrams are a bit "skewed" on the mobile version.
