Welcome to the web home of the Argonne Chess Club.

Membership in the Argonne Chess Club is open to employees of Argonne National Laboratory, the U.S. Department of Energy, the University of Chicago and contractors and students who work at one of Argonne’s sites. It is also open to former employees, retirees and students of these organizations.

The club sponsors one team in the Chicago Industrial Chess League (CICL). During the CICL season, which runs from September through April, the club meets most Thursdays to analyze games from recent matches.
