Our Next Chess Event

There are no upcoming events at this time.

Coaching Classes Each Sunday morning from 10am – 12 noon.


Please note – these will generally run every week except on long weekends and during school holidays


VENUE: The Chess Centre, 10 Ranelagh St Adelaide 5000

Each Coaching Class is suitable for youngsters of all levels and ages (6+) – from beginner (but a knowledge of how the pieces move will be assumed) to advanced. The class covers many key ideas and consist of short lessons and games, all designed to help students discover the real joy of chess.

All the students play each other in a friendly, social atmosphere.

Youngsters older than 6 should have no problems coping with the 2 hours session – the time just flies. Parents are very welcome to stay for all sessions if they wish.


I am very grateful to have my sister Lillian help me – Lil is a retired junior-primary teacher and won the Australian Girls Championship just a few years ago!


Fee: The cost for the morning session is $15.

Please note: These classes will only go ahead at the Chess Centre if there are no restrictions placed on them in SA. We will be following all the guidelines to try to ensure a Covid-Safe environment.

A big shout-out to all the adults who attended the classes at Joe’s Extra News Agency at Hyde Park in 2019 – the fun continues .. 

We will be using Zoom to connect with everyone – you should download Zoom from zoom.com  – it will only take a few minutes and simply follow the instructions. We will also be using LiChess.com and ChessKid.com but can explain how easy it is to obtain these.  

The lesson will consist of a demonstration of some key ideas – openings, tactics, strategies, good, useful stuff – on a chessboard on the screen for a short time using either LiChess or ChessKid and then you  can play games with each other or against Alan online and try some beautiful puzzles.
