What we do

Keep it simple

What we do !!!!

A team that has a story


This is a team created to deliver two things. The first one is giving back to the society through the students/pupils, what they got and the second things we deliver is what we did not get or what we wished that we got when we started our chess journey. Trust us that our Chess journey has been a long one now going to 4/5 decades for the seniors. 
We have created the foundation based on our love and passion for the game. Some of us are Grandmasters/International Masters/Financial experts/Ex Military and die hard Chess players. Trust us and join us...

One Life, One skill, Try Chess !!!
