The Tasmanian Chess Association is a not for profit organisation whose aims are to foster interest, organise tournaments and generally oversee chess in Tasmania.

The Association is affiliated with the Australian Chess Federation, which in turn is a FIDE member and hence a member of the world chess federation.

Entry in TCA organised chess events allows participants the chance to earn or update their official Australian chess rating.

Clubs selected by the TCA run the Tasmanian Championships each year in March, the Tasmanian Open and Lightning each year in June, and other weekend events which may vary from year to year.

The TCA also runs the individual Tasmanian Junior Championships every year.

President: Denis McMahon
Vice-President: Ian Little
Secretary: Ian Little
Treasurer: David Hughes
Junior Chess Officer: Mellissa Harvey
Ratings Officer: Kevin Bonham
