Knightcap Chess Club

Taylor Harrison started Knightcap Chess Club here in Toronto, a venture born out of a passion for chess and community building. Our club aims to unite individuals through the timeless game of chess, providing an inclusive and beginner-friendly environment. The twist? We plan to host our gatherings in some of Toronto’s coolest venues, including bars, restaurants, coffee shops, and event spaces. Picture this: a gathering of minds, where cocktails, wine, and snacks complement the strategic gameplay.
