Some people say that the only way to popularize chess is to put it on XBox and Playstation. The KPHB Sports Festival has a better alternative - giving recognition.
As part of the 6th KPHB Sports Festival, the Kukatpally Housing Board Colony Chess Association at KPHB Phase II, is organising an Under-15 age category chess tournament on 22nd and 23rd January.
This tournament attracts more than 100 players, and this year, too, the organisers are expecting more than this number. The registration is Rs. 50 per participant and the last date of entry is 19th January. Spot entries will not be accepted. All the matches will be played at the association's hall at Bhuvana Vijayam grounds, Phase II.
The matches will be played in the league format, with each player playing at least 5 rounds. The winner will be decided on the basis of the final standings after 7 rounds. Winners, and first and second runners-up will be awarded certificates and trophies, in addition to the cash awards. Participation certificates will be given to all the participants.
