International Chess Day is celebrated on 20 July every year, a tradition that has continued for more than 50 years. It marks the date of the establishment of the International Chess Federation (FIDE).
As it is a game of strategy, playing chess is beneficial to our brain cells. It helps to improve memory function and strategic thinking, and can even help fight Alzheimer’s, dementia and schizophrenia.
Getting your child to play chess is a good way to train their brain too. On top of developing the ability to think rationally, creatively, and under pressure, it also helps to improve IQ levels, problem-solving skills, and concentration.
