Chess is the most popular board game in the world. It is also regarded as an extremely powerful educational tool. Chess helps to develop minds by improving cognitive ability, visualisation, analytical aptitude, focus, memory skills, pattern recognition and intuition. Furthermore chess inspires creativity and builds self-esteem; it also teaches about value and how to transact.

Chess is the great leveller; the universal language that breaks down cultural barriers. Chess teaches us not to be materialistic, and the concept of sacrifice; how to make decisions under pressure and yet to also be patient and driven towards our goals.

Chess prepares us for life!
