New Adult Beginners’ Chess Course

Starting November 3, we have a 7-week adult beginner chess course

Previously, we had a combined adult beginner and intermediate class, but starting in November we’re offering a separate class for beginners. This is a great opportunity for any adult who wants to get into chess!

The instructor, Artiom Samsonkin, is a well-loved chess teacher who has been the backbone of our instructional programme for some time.

If you’re not sure this is for you, come to the first class on a trial basis. Pay after – only if you decide to continue with the classes.

A patient teacher, he relates well to his students and uses humorous examples to bring his clear, well-structured lessons to life. We are lucky to have such an excellent teacher working with us. Don’t miss your chance to take a class with him!
