Gardiner Chess is the longest serving chess organisation in Queensland, having been established by Graeme and Wendy Gardiner in 2002. The business was sold to two long-term employees, Justine Jule and Andrew FitzPatrick in 2015 and they together with their staff continue to take Gardiner Chess forwards.
Gardiner Chess provides three main ways into the world of chess:
Gardiner Chess is the market leader in all things chess with our coaching programs regularly achieving excellent feedback and our events being the envy of other organisations around Australia.
We believe that chess has great benefits for students lucky enough to learn the game. The 9 boxes on the left highlight some of those key pillars of learning that students can gain from being taught chess. At Gardiner Chess we are passionate about every student having the opportunity to learn the game of chess, and we also believe that chess has fewer barriers to being able to participate than most activities.
Whether it be the student learning to become a top player, the student learning because they just enjoy a game of chess, or the student who is involved because their friends are, we believe that there are huge benefits that each student can gain from being taught chess.
Finally, we believe that anyone can learn to play chess – indeed there has been a significant increase in uptake in adults following the smash hit Netflix series ‘The Queen’s Gambit’
