New to Verrado®! The Knights of Verdad Chess club is a place where chess players of all backgrounds and ages can meet to learn, discuss strategy, and challenge each other to a friendly game of chess!
Joining a chess club is a great way to improve your skills! Learn through interactive workshops and game play with other players of all skill levels. Share your best strategies with your neighbors to help them improve as well. If you don’t already know how to play, there will always be someone willing to help you out. Beginners are always welcome! Learn to play chess with us!
It is all about having fun! Yes, chess is a cerebral activity that helps improve reasoning, concentration, and a host of other things. But is also a fun activity and a great way to meet your neighbors! Get together for casual play or serious competition! Because it is a social activity with close proximity, face masks will be required at all times.
That is right, there is no cost whatsoever to join our chess club! Bring your own boards and chess clocks is the only requirement. If you do not have your own equipment, that is ok too, someone will let you play on their board! As we grow, we may be able to purchase official competition equipment through donations, but the club itself will always remain free! Membership to national organizations is optional for competition play and will require fees to join and compete.Read More
The possibilities of what a club in Verrado can do is limitless! We cherish new ideas and new directions. Knights of Verdad could remain just a casual pastime, or it could develop into a chess team that competes with other local or national teams. Clubs are made great by its members and will take form over time. As a club leader, I have only planted the seed and waiting to see what treasures emerge!Read More
