Wallachian Youth Chess Club
The Vsetin Chess Club is run under TJ Zbrojovka Vsetin. Their management’s ambition is not to create a separate chess division, but to focus their activities as widely as possible on the youth base, meaning on all young people, both enrolled and not enrolled, without taking their chess division into consideration.
