Chess Club

Chess Club

With you principal's approval, pick a time and place for club students to meet that's best for you. Your classroom may be best if there are flat playing surfaces and a place to store sets. Buy a couple of cheap sets from Walmart and display them to attract interest. Contact us and we'll suggest the best way to start and keep your club running with minimal work for you.

Fund Raising

One way to raise money for chess sets, clocks, or tournament entry fees is to have a “Beat the Mayor” challenge. You arrange a pot luck meal and invite the mayor and city officials to come play your students and eat with you after wards. Reporters covering the event give your school great PR. Contact us for more details.

"During the past school year, Zellwood Elementary was proud to host a number of Chess Dr. chess tournaments. This was a choice of pride for our students and their parents.
