“Chess chess pieces set up pawns are the soul of the game. François-André Danican Philidor


Experience the world of chess

We are a friendly business that provides children and adults across Melbourne with an opportunity to experience the world of chess and benefit from all the wonder the game has to offer. We have a current focus on teaching school aged children the game and arming them with the mental tools chess helps develop.

Covid Update for 2021

Unfortunately we were unable to continue the chess classes from Term 1 this year.

We’ve been in touch with all our schools and the general feeling is that chess should be able to continue in Term 1, 2021.

Given the unpredictability of the situation we won’t be opening any bookings until we’ve liased again with the schools at the beginning of Term 1.

If we’re given the all clear then we will try to start the classes in the 2nd or 3rd week back. There will be the usual announcements to let you know if chess is on.

If we do go back there will be some Covid safety procedures in place that we will let you know about then.

Some of you missed classes in the last period of Term 1. We are happy to give credit for those classes missed in 2021.

If you don’t think you’ll be able to use the credit in 2021 just send us an email (info@chesseducation.com.au)  with your child’s school, name and grade and how many classes you missed (in most cases it will be one but in some cases it was two) and we’ll refund your money.

Just provide an Account Name,  BSB and Account Number so we can do this.
