The Village People proclaimed how much fun it is to stay at the YMCA, and now the legendary association proves it's got its finger in every pie with the Magna Chess Tournament.
While the YMCA encourages chess-playing talent in all age-groups, it's raison d'etre is of course channeling young blood. They offer chess coaching in many schools across Hyderabad like NASR and Little Flower. They have conducted more than a 100 tournaments already in Hyderabad, and all of them are fairly large-scale. Their Chess Tournament last year at LB Stadium, for example, had around 500 participants. Nearly 30-40 schools sent their students. This year too, similar numbers are expected.
There will be five rounds starting from 0930 hrs at YMCA Narayanguda. The students will be classified into Under Class 4, 5th & 6th classes, 7th class, 8th class, 9th & 10th classes. Spot entries require your presence by 0900 hrs, and the joining fee is Rs. 75. If a large number of students from a school are present, there will be a discount on entry fee.
