If you do not have a chess.com account:
1. Go to chess.com via the URL or a search engine (i.e. google).
2. On the left-hand side click on “Sign Up.” It is orange.
3. Enter a username, email and password for your account.
4. Press “Create your free account”.
5. Join the Rooty Hill Chess Club “club” with either the link: https://www.chess.com/club/rooty-hill-chess-club or through the search bar at the bottom left corner of the screen.
6. Apply to join the group by pressing “Join” and please provide your name.
Once you have joined the group on chess.com, to play in a Rooty Hill Chess Club Tournament:
1. On the menu, either located on the left, right or top of the screen hover over “play” and move the curser over “live chess” and click on it.
2. Locate the “tournaments tab” on the top right hand side. There will be a tournament labelled as “Rooty Hill Chess Club (and the type of tournament it is)”.

4. Once the tournament starts, you will automatically be paired against someone else, and after all games for that round have finished, you will be paired against someone with the same points as you.
