Do you want to be the next Grandmaster of Chess? Or perhaps the next Beth Harmon from the Queen’s Gambit? Then join us for our Learn to Play Chess classes. These classes for children aged 8-13 will focus on setting up your chess board, how chess pieces move, and general game play.

Meet us in the Kathleen Glenn Room on Level 2 of the Central Library - no registration required. All equipment is provided, and donations are welcomed.

Please email Whakaahu/Innovation Team for more details.
