About Chess:

In 2000, a landmark study found that students who received chess instruction scored significantly higher on all measures of academic achievement, including maths, spatial analysis, and non-verbal reasoning ability (Smith & Cage, 2000).

Chess can:

  • help in mathematics
  • improve concentration and focus
  • develop confidence and discipline
  • increase memorizing abilities
  • teaches children to be responsible and thoughtful

Qatar Chess Association:

Qatar Chess Association is a non-profit organization and is part of Qatar National Olympic Committee. It's main goal is to popularize chess in Qatar and to give the chance to the younger generation to better themselves  at the game. In the past year we worked successfully nationally and internationally by running paid chess clubs and organizing chess competitions. The best students competed in the Qatar Primary and Secondary School Chess Championships with the participation of more than twenty schools in each competition.
