    Chess Club will be an opportunity for chess players (or those who want to learn) to get together and practice their skills. We will learn from each other and learn some unique ways to play chess just for fun, as well as, chess etiquette to be used in tournaments and serious chess games. NO CHESS EXPERIENCE IS NEEDED! We will be happy to teach you.
