“In life, unlike chess, the game continues after checkmate.”- Isaac Asimov
Kingsley Chess Club strives to develop and grow the local Chess-playing community in a fun and safe environment.
Playing good chess is all about thinking carefully about your plans and considering all the pros and cons. Often you will end up in a bad situation, but it is up to you alone to think your way through your problems.
If you are in a bad situation in real life, you don't have to do it alone -- there are lots of wonderful professional organisations who can help you through your difficulties.
Kingsley Chess Club is working towards accreditation with Good Sports, Australia's largest community health sports program.
