Children who are beginners and those that can already play are invited to attend so they can learn chess in a fun and friendly way. The aim is to improve their understanding of chess so they can know how to play confidently. So if you think your child would like to have a go please encourage them to join up and take part.
This activity gives priority to young people with special educational needs and disabilities.
