Beginning of the chess club | News24

The Genesis Hub launched its chess club and the first session was well attended.

The Louwville-based Genesis Hub recently launched its own chess club.

On Saturday September 10, the first initiation test session took place at the hub. Despite a rainy day, the weather did not prevent the community from joining the first session.

Andre Lewaks, one of the coaches, mentioned that with the large number of participants, the Genesis Chess Club is currently the largest club in the West Coast region. Lewaks also said he was surprised by the number of top players who joined the first session. He also added that the aim of the chess club is not only to play chess, but also holistic development of youth. The Genesis Hub hopes that through a club experience, young people will also see chess as an escape from certain circumstances that can potentially affect their mental well-being.
