Chess has no barriers, It’s open to all regardless of age, gender, race and physical ability. Chess is truly a ‘sport for all’.  It can help to promote logical thinking and improve concentration for school children and help to ward off cognitive decline and combat loneliness for older participants.

The importance of keeping an active mind as we get older is widely accepted and researchers have found a link between playing chess and reducing the possibility of developing dementia, AD, and other debilitating mental illnesses. In fact, people over the age of 75 that partake in leisure activities such as chess that stimulate the brain were less likely to develop signs of dementia.   Source:
