AIC Chess

Information regarding the 2023 AIC Chess Draw and training schedule will be available soon. Any questions should be directed through the Villanova AIC Chess Coordinator – Mrs Kath Underhill –

Chess has become a very popular sport at Villanova College and is offered to all students. Chess allows students to socialise and compete against their peers. The skills built through playing Chess, such as mathematical, analytical, problem solving and strategy, are often employed in other areas of life, making this sport one of the most beneficial for inner development.

The 2023 Villanova Chess Club is now open at Villanova, with opportunities to play socially at lunchtimes. A number of highly motivated and passionate staff run the College’s Chess program and a specialised external Chess Coach is employed by Villanova to teach all the necessary skills and strategies needed to master the game. From these sessions, teams will be selected based on skill and commitment.

The AIC Chess competition is held during Term 2 and all games are played on Friday afternoons or evenings after school, with our first trial against St Laurence’s on Friday 24 March. More information regarding the draw and training schedule will be available soon via The Locker Room, Sports newsletters and Morning Notices.

Any questions should be directed through the Villanova AIC Chess Co-ordinator – Mrs Kath Underhill –
