Beginner’s Chess Club | 2:30pm – 4:00pm
Chess prepares you for life! Join us for Millvale Community Library’s Beginner’s Chess Club. Players are invited to experience chess with interactive lessons and hands-on instruction. Chess combines concentration, planning, and thinking ahead with playing and competing against an opponent. Each week, prepared lessons and exercises strengthen each student’s knowledge of chess. After weeks of practice and stimulating chess games, the class will have a mini chess tournament with prizes for top players.
These workshops are taught by The Queen’s Gambit Chess Institute, a Pittsburgh based non-profit organization dedicated to teaching chess and using the game to impact Pittsburgh.
