The Mitchell’s Plain Chess Club was established in December 1980 and prides itself as being the oldest and leading chess club in Mitchell’s Plain. The objective of the club is to promote and foster the game of Chess and to contribute towards the improvement of social and cultural standards in the community through Chess. As a club, we try to offer meaningful alternatives to youth and discourage other forms of negative influences. About 60% of our membership age group range is between 7- 17 years old. Besides chess our coaching personnel also provide mentorship in life.
