It doesn’t matter if you know nothing or know a lot - there is something for everyone in this course. We will have fun learning how to play if you don’t know or how to improve if you do. And what’s happening in NZ and the world today in chess.
Everyone should leave the course a bit fascinated with chess and with a ‘Pawn Certificate’ giving you a confident start in a lifelong recreation.
Those who are new or relatively new to chess and want to learn the basics. Those who'd like to start playing chess at home or a club and want to build confidence first.
I liked games of chess after learning new tactics. I enjoyed much more than I expected. Got to play with other players and solve puzzles. I enjoyed the mix of instruction, demonstration of masters' games and playing. The classes were enlivened by the friendly, open tutoring style. 2019
