Delaware Valley Chess Company

In the Summer of 2017 Leteef Street sold the Delaware Valley Chess
Company to Tom Bartell. Leteef has been a great teacher, and promoter of
the game in the Philadelphia area, and we wish him the best at his new job.

With Leteef's departure, Tom hopes to continue the company's efforts of
teaching the joys of chess, and promoting the game. Tom is an
International Master who has taught hundreds students all around the world
for the past 20 years. He's also a published author, and the owner of the
only dedicated chess center in the eastern PA region which offers: classes,
tournaments and more on a weekly basis.

If you are interested in starting a chess program or running a tournament in
a school, with a community organization or any other group, please contact
