Chess Club Meeting Tomorrow

Do you like to play games?

If you enjoy games, you’ll love chess! To learn how to play or to improve your play, visit the Bradford Knights’ Chess Club on Wednesday, October 2 at 6:30 PM at School Street Elementary. Players may register at the door.

The club meets in the School Street Elementary cafeteria each Wednesday from 6:30 - 8:15 PM.

All students in grades 3-12 are invited to join the scholastic chess program. The introductory program is scheduled for 5 weeks from October 2 through October 30. The Bradford Businessmen’s Chess League will begin November 6 and run through March 12.

Many activities are scheduled, including pizza parties, matches, and tournaments.

Research continues to confirm the educational value that chess instruction has on cognitive development, critical thinking skills, and academic subjects.

There is a fee. For additional information about joining the club or the educational benefits of chess, please visit our website at or email us at
