MCC History

The Melbourne Chess Club is the longest continually operating chess club in the Southern Hemisphere and as such has a very long and interesting history.

Past MCC President Robert Brooking's short book, "Care for a Game" narrates the history of the club from its beginning to 1977. Bob is in the process of writing the next few chapters to bring our story up to date.

Care For A Game

The book is exclusively available from the Club Bookshop.
