The Princess Ruth Keelikolani Middle School Chess Club is both a competitive and social club. English Chess Grandmaster, Simon Williams once stated, “The beauty of chess is it can be whatever you want it to be. It transcends language, age, race, religion, politics, gender, and socioeconomic background. Whatever your circumstances, anyone can enjoy a good fight to the death over the chess board.” The Chess Club is open to all students regardless of their chess knowledge and skill. For beginners, students learn the basics of chess and are able to play against peers of similar skill level and learn from advanced players. For advanced players, students learn techniques and strategies to claim victory over their opponent. As a social club, students play chess with peers as well as volunteers from the community to build relationships through challenge and fun. As a competitive club, both exhibition matches and tournaments are frequently held between various schools on Oahu. ” We hope to see you on the chessboard!
