Chess for Seniors

Chess is an incredibly stimulating mental activity.  Studies suggest that chess can help stave off Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia in older adults.  Chess is also a great inter-generational activity benefiting young and old alike.  Hampton Roads Chess Association is piloting a program to bring chess instruction and even tournament play to senior centers and retirement homes throughout our area, as well as connecting youth and Seniors to play chess together.  Contact us to discuss our programs and schedule an appointment!
