Our History

The Hermanus Chess Club was first founded in 2016, and has been growing ever since. We have competed in numerous club championships and matches, such as the Ovberg Chess Leauge and Western Cape Club Championship. We afilliated with the Hermanus Sports Club in 2021 and have been playing there ever since on Thursday afternoons. Our goal has always been to grow the sport and share the love of the game, and we will continue to do so in Hermanus and the greater Overberg.
