Join our free women-only chess class on Sundays from 11am – 1pm!

The intimate class welcomes all beginner and intermediate levels — from not knowing how the pieces move to those who play casual chess with friends and family. You will have the opportunity to solve some puzzles/combinations, followed by a lecture (always something difference!) and last 30 minutes reserved for free play.

The class is taught by Lina Krubnik and Sophie Adams. Lina was rated among the top 100 women in the country by the US Chess Federation rating list and counts a draw with former World Champion Boris Spassky when he gave a simultaneous exhibition at the MI in 2006. Sophie is a National FIDEO Instructor and enjoys teaching chess in both class settings and private lessons.

We are the oldest chess club in the country, offering a relaxed and inviting atmosphere. Start anytime!

Children under the age of twelve years should not be left unattended during classes.
