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.

Metro Chess Club Lichess Team (17/05/20)
Message from Lichess Tournament Organiser Keegan O'Mahoney:

Please join the new Metro Chess lichess team I've created here: https://lichess.org/team/metro-chess-club-perth.
Rather than having a password, future tournaments will require you to be a member of this team.

Important: Please join as soon as possible. I need to approve you and if you try to join just as a tournament is starting I can't guarantee I'll be online.

Important #2: When you are applying to join, please leave your name in the comment box provided. If I don't know who you are I won't approve you. These are supposed to be friendly tournaments with people we know from the chess club, so staying anonymous isn't really in the spirit of what is intended. If you have any trouble joining just let me know. I think you may have to solve a mate in 1 puzzle to "prove you are human" but otherwise should be quite straightforward. Just please remember to leave your name.

If want more information about playing at Lichess or want to participate in future events, please get in touch with Keegan at: keeganomahoney@gmail.com
