We are a nonprofit organization dedicated to growing chess in Indianapolis for adults and kids alike!  We incorporated in March 2023 after running 50 free events the two previous years under the name Naptown Gambit Chess Club.  Our team hopes to create interesting events that build strategic thinking and community for all through the lessons of chess, and we invite you to join us!
