Knights & Bytes

Knights & Bytes is a special business set up in South Australia by Alan Goldsmith to promote chess to schools, groups and individuals. Our team teaches chess to students of all ages in many different schools, such as Grange PS, Linden Park PS, Westbourne Park PS, Rosary School, Star of the Sea, Pembroke School, Pulteney Grammar, Seymour College, Walford School, St Raphael’s, Adelaide HS, St Peter’s College, Glen Osmond PS, Unley PS and many others.

We love chess! We have been playing it for years and appreciate its beauty, logic and fun. We know it is beneficial to all who try it, regardless of their age, and we do everything we can to encourage people to play.

Our Shop

We have a shop at 136 Port Rd Hindmarsh – just a block down from the Entertainment Centre, on the same side – that allows us to sell chess equipment, including club sets & boards (ideal for schools), garden chess sets, digital chess clocks and a range of instructive and entertaining chess books.

The shop is also used as a venue for coaching sessions and is particularly busy on Saturday mornings with juniors playing and learning in small groups.
