Frankston South - please rsvp for address

GSN Chess Club is open to children aged 5 and over. We match the children with players at their chess skill level rather than players of their age. Some are beginners and we coach them, others have stronger skills.

We have two adults keeping an eye on the games and helping the children learn chess.

We have five chess boards and also appreciate it if families bring a board if possible. 

Please bring a nut-free snack to share with the group.   

NOTE: Parents are required to stay and supervise their child(ren) to meet Child Safe Standards. We have toys and games for younger children to play if they are not ready for chess yet.
