    Children's Chess Festival is a RAPID CHESS tournament for Children. It is conducted in a swiss-league format complying to international standards. The children are categorized into 3 age groups. U8, U12 & U16 and conducted for 2 days.

    Children's Chess Festival was initiated in 2013 and has achieved a mile stone of its own by attracting more and more chess players. Our tournament is a mix of rated and non-rated chess players which makes the tournament more exciting and challenging.

    We reward every children under 7 age group to encourage them to keep the momentum and focus and make chess a part of their curriculum which will enable them to utilize their fore-thinking and problem solving capabilities in their day today lives. Chess can benefit a child in the following ways:


    Chess is an ever changing complex puzzle that needs to be solved using creative thinking. Players must imagine all the possibilities in order to predict the opponents moves and the consequences of those moves.


    To play chess well, we have to learn to expand the working memory capacity to hold a plan for several offensive moves, while at the same time holding a memory of how the opponent could respond to each of the moves.


    Being immersed in a game of chess will require you to concentrate your thoughts on the positioning of each piece as they relate to the big picture. This will stimulate the mind constantly and improve the ability to focus on a task in a stressful environment.


    Playing chess requires a player to approach the game with a specific strategy in mind. The strategy of the game may change as the game progresses, this requires the pieces to be coordinated to support the overall strategy of the game.
