Chess Club

  • Chess Club


    Whether you are just learning how to play or are an experienced tournament player, Ligon's Chess Club is a great way to have fun, learn, and play lots of chess! Our club is sponsored by the Ligon PTA and is open to students from all grade levels. 

    When and where do we meet?
     We meet Monday afternoons in Ms. Li's classroom. Each week we learn new chess skills and practice them by playing chess. We use to practice and play each other between meetings.
    Are there any competitions?
    Yes, we will run our own tournaments rated by the US Chess Federation and play in local events. We will compete as a team in the NC K-12 Chess Championship which will be March 11-12, 2017 at the Raleigh Convention Center. Some of our students will also compete in the National Championship, May 12-14, 2017 in Nashville, TN.
