General The Metropolitan Chess Club is one of the Senior Chess Clubs in Western Australia, with over 40 members. The playing strength of members range from State Champions to adult beginners and juniors.

Naturally, the Metro Club is affiliated with the CAWA (Chess Association of Western Australia) which in turn is affiliated with the ACF (Australian Chess Federation). Club members must therefore be financial members of the CAWA to enjoy the benefit of participating in Australian rated tournaments held at the club.

Many members support the club through representation in the Harris/Edwardes Trophy Inter-Club competition. The Metro Club has won the Premier Division on many occasions since the competition began in 1958.

Our members are also keen to play in the WA Grand Prix events that are organised by the CAWA over selected weekends.
