Keep Your Mind Fit

Did you know that mentally challenging activities such as chess may help prevent Alzheimer's disease?  Keeping the brain active helps increase its vitality and may build its reserves of brain cells and connections. You could even generate new brain cells. A German study by Dr. Robert Freidland featured in The New England Journal of Medicine found that people over the age of 75 who regularly engage in activities like chess are less likely to develop Dementia and Alzheimer's than their non-board-game-playing peers. Proof that there is all the more reason to play chess!

If you are novice or expert player, please feel free to come and join the Hunters Hill Seniors Chess Group where you can enjoy a hot cup of coffee while you play chess with other like-minded peers. This is a non-competitive social chess group suitable for players of all levels. The group meets weekly at Ironwood Coffee. For more information, please contact us on 9817 0101.
