History of Home 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.
