The history of PV chess goes back more than 31 years. Piece by piece this sport has grown in PV and currently we have 3 teams entered into league matches, and many social players who enjoy this ancient sport. We are also proud of the fact that we have frequently done so well in the league fixtures, that we have been invited to take part in top school tournaments.
At PV we believe in the benefits of this sport and motivate learners to play chess, even if it is just in a social manner, as chess improves concentration and memory, enhances reading and mathematics skills, fosters logic and critical thinking and encourages hard work.
ACTIVITIES THROUGHOUT THE YEAR:
- The PV chess teams practice every Wednesday from 14:30 – 16:00.
- On Friday afternoon league matches are played in the winter terms.
- Players are encouraged to take part in open tournaments which are advertised on the following websites: http://wcschess.co.za/ and www.chessa.co.za/
- We offer regular coaching clinics and all team players get the opportunity to take part in open WP trials held in February each year.
We aim to continuously provide excellent training to all our chess players so that they may reach their full potential. We strive to provide all teams with maximum exposure to matches and to cultivate sportsmanship regardless of winning or losing.
