Chess club

Chess at Nailsworth 2020

At Nailsworth Primary School we currently run two Chess Clubs. The Nailsworth Blue Chess club is for students in Years 6 and 7. The Nailsworth White Chess club is for students in Years 4 and 5. Each club is limited to 20 students, with the older year level given greater preference.

Nailsworth White meet in the Library at lunchtime on Tuesdays.  Nailsworth Blue meet in the Library at lunchtime on Thursdays. As there are limited places in each club it is expected that students make a commitment to continue to attend the regular training.

Attending the Chess clubs allow students to practise playing games against other students, learn the tournament rules, as well as training in different strategies (openings, ‘pins’, ‘forks’, ‘skewers’, and end game).

Students in the Nailsworth Blue Chess club have the opportunity to participate in the SA Schools Interschool Chess Tournaments. A team of 20 students is able to enter these tournaments. These are 7 game tournaments with the team score calculated on the top 4 players from each team. Students who perform well in these tournaments are offered invitations to the State Finals.
