Our Mission

African Chess Lounge is a non-profit organization whose goal is to promote chess and the values it teaches to the community. We offer instruction for all skill levels, train coaches, and host tournaments and special events. Our classes are designed to be fun and engaging for children of all ages and abilities. With the help of volunteers, we also teach chess in schools, libraries, and youth centers in order to increase awareness of its benefits.


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.
