The West Louisville Chess Club was founded in May 2016 by the Louisville Urban League. Coach Corbin was appointed the senior coach.

We are fundraising to successfully compete in two regional tournaments and one national tournament. A good many of our chess athletes are from single parent households. That often makes it financially difficult for a many of our chess athletes to successfully compete in regional and national tournaments. 

At the Louisville Scholastic Chess Open, held at the University of Louisville, on November 10, featured 60 chess athletes from around the region. Out of the 60, twelve were West Louisville Chess Club members and out of our 12, 8 won place trophies. That includes Rick who scored 5 out of 5 (perfect score) and won a 1st place trophy in his rated section. Charlie against insanely tough competition won a third place trophy in his rated section. He scored 4 out of 5! 

Wave 3 did a story on the tournament. That broadcast featured our two chess club members...Charlie and Bacari. So proud of them both and the whole chess club....
