Chess Mania – Elephant and Castle

CSC is excited to announce that, in partnership with Delancey, we will be organising a chess fun day at Castle Square in Elephant and Castle on Saturday the 3rd of November. The day will kick off at midday and will be open to everyone in the community.
We will be hosting a big simultaneous chess competition; where members of the public can pit their chess strength against Woman International Master Ayelene Martinez, who will be taking on all comers all at once!
There will be a giant chess set for all to join in and play, with chess master commentary too. There will be free chess coaching for children, chess games, and opportunities to meet new people. This event will be held in the run-up to the World Chess Championship, which will be in London and starts just a few days after – the air will be a-buzz with chess mania!
