Beginners Holiday Camp
Organised by 
Cheras Chess Academy 
(Kuala Lumpur)

29 & 30 August 2017

   The August holidays chess training camp took place on 29 & 30 August 2017 at the International Youth Centre in Cheras, Kuala Lumpur. A hundred plus participants took part in the camp which was organised by the Cheras Chess Academy. 
    The Chess camp was headed by Fide Trainer & Candidate Master Collin Madhavan who was capably assisted by Fide Instructor Olivia Madhavan, Fide National Instructor Ms Doris Wong, Fide National Instructor Bob Yap, Fide National Instructor Genkeswaran & Fide National Instructor Kumaressan. The coaches are all very qualified, capable, children friendly, very responsive to the needs of the children and were very resourceful in finding new ways in teaching theory to the young minds.   
     Here are some of the photos that were taken at the Chess Camp.
