Good day to every one!

I am a Filipino and is interested to play chess tournaments in Australia if permitted by the existing rules and regulations of its chess federation. If so permitted, to whom shall I coordinate and what are the things for me to do in this regard?

I hope and pray that this concern of mine be given due consideration.

Thank you very much.


Respectfully yours,

Hi Ismar

As Elliott indicates, chess is mostly run in Australia at state level - the Australian Chess Federation looks after the international stuff and tenders out the national championships

So where you play will depend largely on which state you happen to be in. See www.caq.org.au/htm/links.htm for the web sites of the state associations, plus Queensland clubs if you wind up in Queensland.

Wherever you are, you'll be welcome

I'll be moving the above few posts and any further replies to a new thread once I am satisfied that Ismar has seen the replies.

But please note that the ACF site has lots of old info and broken links.

For example, try clicking on the Grand Prix!

Usually if it's broke it needs fixing! But I'm not sure this applies to the ACF. :)

Correct - it's not broke according to the Treasurer :D
