Chess Club

Starting chess at a young age will give a life skill in this intriguing and fascinating game which could be beneficial in the future.

 

A typical session would be:

Set up the boards and pieces.

We learn how to play (beginners); all play quietly at first, then a discussion session with the magnetic chess board; then carry on with more games and then put everything away.

There would also be information about opportunities to play at other venues and to learn about the world of chess

 

Chess can be good for concentration, thinking things through and organisation.

 

The game has been shown to develop skills in mathematics due to the nature of the board and the co-ordinate system for naming each square so the games can be recorded and discussed and the counting needed for instance when contemplating captures and considering defence.

 

It is also good for developing ability to explain things.

 

Those involved play with others of different age groups and abilities and practice  sporting etiquette.

 

Young minds gradually build up these skills in a fun atmosphere and with competitive spirit.
