About Us

The primary motto of the club is to popularize chess as a hobby among the campus residents. This club is not only for regular players but for beginners as well. We have everything you need. All we ask for is your enthusiasm. Learn to be better if you are good and best if better. There is a famous saying by a chess author Irving Chernev, Every chess master was once a beginner.

Activities@ IITK


We regularly play chess (Blitz, Bullet, Rapid & Long) at the club and indulge in activities like training with senior IITK students, puzzle solving sessions, opening and end game analysis and tactical trainings. We also organize workshop(s) on chess by some rated professional players. We conduct various tournaments like fresher's tournament, anti-chess tournaments, puzzle solving tournaments and selection rounds for various inter-college level sport fests like InterIIT, Udghosh etc.
