S.V. Vredeburg was founded in 1974 and is a flourishing chess club with about 40 members of all ages. Vredeburg conducts a chess education for the youth at the local primary school. Adolescents and seniors play a club competition at Friday night.
A computer system makes sure players always get to play an opponent of the same strength. This means that for both beginners as well as experienced players, it is always fun and exciting to join the activity.
Our club takes part with 4 teams in the regional NHSB league, ran by the North Holland Chess Federation. The first team plays in the first division, the second team in second division, and two quartets of players compete in the fourth division. Also, in each season – starting in September up to the end of May – we organise multiple events and tournaments at e.g. Christmas and Easter, but also a rapid and a blitz tournament.
Everyone interested in chess is invited to take a look Friday night from 8:15 pm, or even join in the beautiful Cultural Center Vredeburg, Dusseldorperweg 64, Limmen.

Get into the village from Castricum or Heiloo via the Rijksweg, turn eastwards at the traffic lights (Kerkweg), then right again and the end of the street in front of the church. After 100 yards it is on the left. One enters the club through the side entrance.
