In a galaxy of stimulating games across the globe, one game truly stands apart for
its sheer potential to demand the optimum utility of mind-skills. Yes, there is
nothing quite like chess - incomparable, inimitable and absolutely inspiring.
The "Madras Chess Club" (now Tamil Nadu State Chess Association), was formed on
26th April 1947 at Chennapuri Andhra Maha Sabha Chennai with the aim of holding
chess tournaments and All India Championships.
At TNSCA, it has been our prerogative to identify upcoming chess players and mould
them into world-class professionals. To achieve this lofty ideal, we incessantly
provide many tournament opportunities and promote chess across the state of Tamil
Nadu with astute planning and systematic execution.
We believe that constant exposure makes chess players gain confidence, besides enhancing
their skill of the game. In order to facilitate this, we at TNSCA organize State
Chess Championships in different categories every year. This throws open tremendous
opportunities, especially for players who dream of leaving an indelible mark in
this enthralling game.
In order to give the ultimate benefits to chess enthusiasts across the state, we
co-operate and co-ordinate with the Sports Development Authority of Tamil Nadu and
the All India Chess Federation. The result of this has been remarkably fruitful.
Indeed TNSCA has been triumphant in producing some of the commendable chess players
in the country.
Besides that, our ceaseless ventures in unison with the All India Chess Federation
to run more national and international tournaments in Tamil Nadu have been instrumental
in generating players of supreme quality.
At TNSCA, our passion for the game motivates us to empower chess players by giving
them an escalated social status. We very firmly believe that the players have to
enjoy respect and adoration in the society, which will make them psychologically
at ease, thereby inducing them to give their best to the game. We strive to give
them this advantage and boost their spirits.
Our no-compromise approach and functioning is evident from the fact that we offer
the most competent coaching to the juvenile players before they compete at the national
level. This helps them in mastering the intricacies of the game and adds a dash
of confidence that does them a world of good.
We at Tamil Nadu State Chess Association boast of a unique tradition of producing
some of the finest chess players. Of these, the most valuable and the most remarkable
till date is, without a shade of doubt, the legendry Viswanathan Anand. Well, if
he is a monument amongst chess professionals, TNSCA is the proud architect. In the
years to come, we are sure of giving the world, more such wondrous players from
the state of Tamil Nadu.
Our exalted dream continues. So do our extraordinary efforts.
