ECCC Tournaments


Emerald City Chess Club will not be holding chess tournaments for the foreseeable future. Until the chess club has enough members in leadership roles to where we can have multiple assigned to planning and executing a tournament, we will not be hosting tournaments.

If you are a University of Oregon student who would like to help bring tournaments back to the U of O, please contact us at


Eugene Chess Tournaments


Bethel Quads

Willamette High School


A monthly quad with no age or experience restrictions. The quads take place in the media center of Willamette High School in Eugene. Cost is $10 with all proceeds going to the Willamette High School Chess Club.

Players are divided into four player quads based on the higher of either USCF or NWSRS rating and play a round-robin style tournament with the other three players in the group. The tournament will be NWSRS rated for all quads and USCF rated if all members of a quad are USCF members. 

Registration is from 12:30-1:15 PM with games starting at 1:30. Games will range from G25/5 to G40/5 depending on the preference of the players in the quad. The winner of each quad gets $10 plus free entry into the next quad.
