  1. Would you recommend memberships to Chess beginners? I’ve only been playing for a couple of months and would love to improve my playing skills.

    Are beginners grouped with other beginners? Just curious.

    Your reply is greatly appreciated.


    1. Hi, Anthony. Thanks for your question!

      A lot of beginners choose to take the beginner class, where they play and learn together with other beginners.

      Another choice is the casual section. Casual players find their own opponents, but tend to gravitate towards opponents of similar strength.

      When you’re ready for tournament play, again we have tournaments divided into sections so that players face opponents who range in ability, but still of a relatively similar calibre.

      If you want to start with a class, you don’t also need to purchase membership, and casual play is still included in course costs.
