It’s not just chess!

THNOC Chess Club blends the game of chess with creative activities and historical research. Members learn about the rich history of chess in New Orleans from the 19th century to the present day. For questions about the club, contact THNOC Education Specialist Kendric Perkins.

Who can join?

Anyone with basic knowledge of the rules of chess and chess notation can join the club. This is a club for all ages.

Who leads the club?

THNOC Chess Club is youth-led. Members in the 6th-12th grades will be given the opportunity to plan THNOC’s annual Community Chess Day, where we host a community chess tournament and showcase club members’ chess-related creative projects.

When and where does the club meet?

For Spring 2022, youth members interested in leading the club will meet on site at The Collection bi-monthly, with meetings on March 27, May 22, and July 9.
