“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.

Good Sports

Kingsley Chess Club is working towards accreditation with Good Sports, Australia's largest community health sports program.
