Join the Boca Raton Public Library for the annual Mayors’ Chess Challenge in Boca Raton! Players of all ages, beginner and expert, are invited to play chess with other community members. The Mayors’ Chess Challenge started in South Florida in 2014 to draw attention to the benefits of chess, one of the oldest and most intriguing of games, and is now hosted by 20 cities throughout the year. Players of all ages and abilities learn critical-thinking skills, improve concentration and discipline, develop problem-solving skills, and build self-esteem and good sportsmanship. Plus, chess is fun! Participants can pick up a special “passport” to log all the local events they attend. Instructors will be on hand to help those new to the game. Bring the whole family for an exciting morning of chess and community engagement. Enrollment is not required.
