Who we are

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.

Learn @ Aspire

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.
