The Epping Junior Chess Club has started for the first time in August 2019. If numbers permit, there will be 3 groups of different levels at this club - a Beginner group, an Intermediate group and an Advanced group. Each week, the coaches give a lesson that is appropriate to the skill level of the children who are attending. Beginners will learn how to play and all of the rules of chess, progressing to learn some basic checkmates and strategies when they are ready. Intermediate and Advanced players will learn about opening theories, tactics, strategies and endgames improving their game and expanding the calculation skills and foresight that they have already been developing.
The chess coaches will include at least 1 Titled Chess Master, IM Stanislav Smetankin.
