Retiree Lessons

There isn’t an age limit on chess or the skills it can develop, and as life gets busier we forget the benefits chess can offer in favour of other things. Fortunately, Chess Mates runs classes in Aged Care Facilities to provide fun and engaging lessons for retirees. Our primary focus is on providing a different activity in a relaxed social setting. We’re not looking to create grandmasters.

Our instructors are patient and love a good chat. We cater to all levels, from absolute beginners looking to try something new to the more experienced getting back into an old hobby.

If you would like to trial a Chess Mates Program at your Aged Care Facility, please send an email to or call 1300 Chess Mates (1300 243 776).
