Chess Club

Great news readers, a new chess club will be starting soon, and we need your help! Firstly, let’s ask the obvious question:

Why a chess club?

Well, why not! There are many benefits to a chess club. Firstly, it’s a great way to make friends and meet new people. From the chess clubs we have run over the years, there has been many new connections with amazingly bright people from all over the world. Secondly, it’s a really exciting game to play. One can become lost in chess for hours on end trying to calculate and re-calculate moves. This leads to the third point, it’s a game with a winner. This is also a main driver for us at 101 Chess Tips, the feeling of winning at chess club is just like no other. But it’s also important to remember to be a good sport. Being humble as well as respecting your opponent is a cornerstone of any chess club we are involved in.

What and where?

This chess club will be run via the local schools. 101 Chess Tips will supply the tools and know how for each school to set up the club. Appropriate permissions from governance and parents will also be sort before the club starts at the school. The goal will be for each club to meet at least once per week after school or during lunch break depending on the needs of the students.

Promotion

This is where we need your help. Soon we will be launching the new website to promote the chess club and will involve the need to achieve good rankings on Google. One of the first steps to do this will be investing in good backlinks like on this page. These backlinks will be essential for helping us grow up the rankings ladder for the keywords that we are looking to rank. Most students these days will be search for chess clubs online and being in the top 3 results will help us grow the business. Therefore, if you have a website, please contact us about linking to our website.

Benefits

There will be many benefits to joining the chess clubs. They will be everything that is needed for the day supplied by us. This includes all chess facilities as well as snacks and drinks for the kids. Each club will have a member on hand to guide the kids through any rules and game play strategies as well as set up the games. This would take away the need for additional parental supervision, although we highly encourage parents who love chess to participate in the clubs too.

What are the next steps?

Currently, we are finalizing the details of the games how and the logistics with surrounding schools. Once complete, a beta program will be launched involve one or two schools. This beta chess club will last for 6 months and at the end of that period we will reassess to then expand on the idea.

There’s a lot to be excited about with this chess club and we hope that you can share this excitement with us as we launch to the public. Please reach out to us if you want to see the chess club launched at your school in the near future.
