Chess culture above! HSC was founded in 2021 and in a couple of years the club has grown into one of the largest chess communities in Finland. At the heart of its activities are Tuesday game nights at the club's home venue, Street Bar Kallio. It's an easy way to get to know us. Our representative team is the two-time reigning Finnish team chess champion!
