Hingham Chess Club: Beginner Lessons

Thursday, January 11, 2018

In this 12-week cycle, Beginners will master chess basics, including how pieces move; maneuvering the board; applying chess terms such as castling; and the stages of play. A period of open play will follow every lesson from 4:45-5:15. All ages are welcome, but HCC recommends a minimum age of six years old, and the ability to work independently. All chess lessons at Hingham Public Library are free. To help offset the costs of funding the program, a suggested donation of $10 per lesson is gratefully accepted by Hingham Chess Club, yet not required. Through their partnership with the Hingham Public Library, HCC is also the recipient of a grant generously provided by the Harold and Avis Goldstein Trust.
