Home of chess, is an inspiration, an idea born with the purpose of spreading chess knowledge through the middle east. As the name suggests it is a common roof for people from all walks of life. From beginners to professionals, young to old, expats to locals, all are welcome under this roof. The sole aim of this organization is to spread the love of chess.
Home of chess was born around November 2014, with a few key people who got to know each other via common acquaintances, and who loved the game. Over time they realized the opportunities or the lack thereof for chess in UAE and other countries. The fact that one could play or be a part of local chess clubs only if from that country fueled the idea of creating an avenue for expats and locals alike to come together and form a club to learn and grow chess. As a part of this initiative, online social group Home of chess was formed. This group was integrated into various social media platforms, and thus became the strong social group that it is today.
Home of chess aims to expand it’s roots in the middle east region and be a platform for people from any country to become a part of it, to learn chess, participate in events, become an official player, help spread the love of the game. Home of chess plans to achieve this by
Becoming the first ever private club in the region
Start chess coaching in schools
Conduct events for Corporates and other government institutions
Conduct chess training workshops in other countries
Create opportunities for the best coaches
Have a platform for commercializing chess via social networks etc.
With additions growing every week, the HoC community is only bound to grow over time, and with it expand the chess universe in the region while keeping the values of the game as guiding principles at heart.
