Zeno's famous paradoxes  continue to puzzle, influence and inspire people to the current day. Similarly, in this new Chess club our aim is to puzzle, influence and inspire budding Chess players. Puzzles and paradoxes are superb mediums for education, and it is only through creative problem solving that real progress can be made in Chess. Warning! Regular participation is likely to improve your opening and middle-game strategies, endgame technique and all-round tactical ability.
