Selecting Chess Sets for the Classroom

  • February 09, 2022

Which chess sets are a good choice for the classroom? Here are tips to help you save time finding the right equipment, how to set up and even store it. Plus, I'll share some of my favorite teaching resources for class.

A regulation size club chess set is the starting point. These have 20" vinyl boards. If you have smaller table or desk surfaces, you can obtain 17" chessboards.
