Our Mission

African Chess Lounge is an educational and sporting organization. ACL has the goal of maintaining a formal program of instruction to teach the game of chess. We also seek to increase awareness of the advantages and values of chess through community outreach programs. 


If you love chess, you’ll love this club. It’s a place for people who enjoy each other’s company and who encourage others to play. You can have fun here and challenge your friends to matches. 


We provide chess lessons and classes that teach fundamental chess elements in addition to promoting educational values that can be taught through chess.


The goal of our Chess Coach Training program is to provide parents/teachers with the knowledge and tools to act as an ongoing resource to help further chess programs at schools.
