Hingham Chess Club for Beginners
February 15 @ 4:00 pm - 4:45 pm
An event every week that begins at 4:00pm on Thursday, repeating until February 15, 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.
