All tournaments are not regionally limited but do always allow the participations of chess friends from all over the world.

A special relevancy in the Dresden Chess Association has popular chess (as opposed to professional chess). There is an intense cooperation with schools in Dresden to promote family chess. But there are, in addition, the chess hike - an annual combination of hiking and playing chess with the Dresden "Wanderfreunde". Since several years there has also been developing a unique chess tournament in the penal institution in Dresden. Twice a year tournaments are organized there. Furthermore, a team of the institution is competing in the city league with great success.

Always appreciated and gladly welcomed are the three tournaments in the project "chess with disabled" which thanks to its support by the Ostsächsischen Sparkasse can now record participants from all over the country. The project  annually organizes championships for deaf, physically disabled and families. The latter have the feature that a disabled person can build a "family" with any optional chess player.
