St. Stephen's De La Salle

The Chess Club has been running in St. Stephen’s for many years. Billy Flynn takes the players after school on Tuesdays every week to teach them the art of playing one of the world’s oldest and most famous games.

The beginner’s section learn all about the pieces and many moves you can make on the chess board – as well as the importance of watching not only your own moves, but the moves of your opponent too! The advanced players use what they’ve learned to play games of Chess against each other, learning more about the game and how and when to move. The boys also play in a yearly chess league, with Billy keeping the players on their toes with some really challenging games! To add to that, the players receive tips on how to improve their game.
