1st ISHWAR NGO Chess Tournament 2016

It was the first time that this kind of an event was held at the NGO. I was extremely excited and looked forward to organising a tournament for the very first time. I was amazed to see how excited the kids were to play with the clocks and participate in the tournament. I also got an opportunity to start the 'learning chess on a computer' for the students. It was a proud moment when the kids got to use a chess game CD on the computer for the very first time. They were eager to play on the computer and are now looking forward to practising regularly on it. The tournament and the project is now associated with 'Chess for Children with G.M. Tania Sachdev' and it gives me immense happiness that my project is being taken up by other chess players and promoters as well.
The tournament was a single round robin event and was played with the latest FIDE rules and the latest chess clocks. Each player played with the others in the tournament once. There were a total of 5 matches and one boy managed to win all his games. In the end I also gave away the certificates and the prizes which were in the form of chess magazines to all the participants. I now look forward to organising more such events in the future.
