Would you like to learn more about the game of chess?

Whether you are a beginner or an advanced player, you will have the chance to play against others of different ages and abilities while being coached by a professional chess coach.
The Gifted and Talented Children’s Association of South Australia is offering Saturday Chess Club on four Saturdays  during the school terms.  For children aged 5-8 although the presenter is happy to  involve older children too so why not give it a try if chess is your thing!
