Celebrating our 17th Year of Chess-in-the-Park!
On Saturday, September 16th the 2017 Chess-in-the-Park Rapid Open was held at Central Park’s beautiful Bethesda Foundation. More than 700 players, ranging in age from 5 to 85 joined in the excitement of our annual kick-off event. “This year’s Chess-in-the-Park tournament was a joy to behold, as hundreds of players, of various backgrounds and ages came together to celebrate our common bond – the game of chess. A wonderful time was had by all and we sincerely thank our partner, NYC Parks for its invaluable support of the event,” said Chess in the Schools President & CEO, Debbie Eastburn.
