Chess is Calling, Bengaluru

Learn chess in Bengaluru

Did you spend the last couple of years in a series of virtual meetings, webinars, and online tutorials for everything from languages to cooking?

So did most people around the world.

The brainiacs of Bengaluru, however, did things a little differently. Our Smart City lived up to its reputation by learning chess online.

Kids have picked up a bit of everything – from strategy to skill – from moving pieces around on a chessboard on a screen. The 44th Chess Olympiad, held in Mahabalipuram in August 2022, only added to the buzz around this unique game. Who can forget how Napier Bridge in Chennai was decked up in black and white, like a chessboard? It became a selfie spot, and made international headlines too.

And while that’s great, with the worst of Covid behind us, it’s time to ditch those haphazard learnings from random tutorials. It’s time to lean into a systematic learning plan for the game of life, the game of chess.

There’s no better place to do so, than CHESS KLUB.

Bengaluru has always loved all things creative and fun. In the past couple of years, there has been a rise in the number of chess-playing groups, and the interest in chess itself. So much so, that even during a pandemic, we, at CHESS KLUB, saw a 30-40% increase in enquiries about chess classes at our Fort Mill center, and online too. Staying at home these past two years has whetted people’s appetites for something challenging and inventive, and chess is the perfect game for that.
