We are a chess club based in the city of Pondicherry, India. We believe in innovative teaching methods, having a lot of fun, developing a competitive atmosphere and in a creative approach towards chess training aimed at holistic development in children.
The COVID pandemic has changed the way we function. From being a dedicated physical chess club in Pondicherry, we have now changed to a virtual chess club that also offers face-to-face personal classes at your doorstep if required. Feel free to contact us if you have questions.

His highest FIDE rating is 2129 and has played in the international arena for a short span of time before finding his passion for teaching. He dropped out of engineering in the last year and started his own learning journey which led him to wear different hats – from being a writer, a hobby programmer, a volunteer in non-profits to being a part of different startups internationally through freelancing. He has had the privilege of working with some of the exceptional minds in the chess field like Susan Polgar, Maurice Ashley, and many leading chess companies.
