MLK Chess Club

For chess players of all ages and skill levels!

Do you know your en passant from your en prise? Your Sicilian Defense from your Ruy Lopez opening? If not, no matter! If you want to learn the basics about how to play or are trying to find some new partners for live games, the MLK Chess Club is for you: we welcome players of all ages and skill levels. Just bring your desire to enjoy "the royal game," and we'll provide the board and pieces.

Starting in August, we'll meet every Saturday at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library to learn the techniques of the game and play matches. Players can play games ranging from ten-minute blitz to one-hour games, or extended games that last a few sessions. Brief one-on-one coaching for people who desire it can be offered by library staff while games are in progress. And each month we'll hold a chess tournament where players can compete!

When: Every Saturday, starting August 27, 2022
2:00pm to 3:30pm
Where: Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library
