Following a long break from activities largely due to the covid-19 pandemic, The Gambia Chess Federation (GCF) began consultations with its stakeholders on the way forward for Gambian chess.

For the past 6-7 months, all sporting activities were halted as advised by authorities to help contain the spread of the virus in The Gambia.

The GCF said it is closely monitoring unfolding events in the country and remains committed to the initial pronouncement by the Ministry of Youth and Sports through the National Sports Council on the suspension of all sporting activities.

As we look forward to the resumption of sports in the coming weeks or months like many other sectors, the federation announced that it has open a new Chess parlour/center at Serrekunda.

It is meant to welcome limited number of players to meet and play during weekends, after a long break without competition.

However, the federation emphasized the importance and stricter observations of health regulations such as wearing face mask, hand washing and social distancing.

Limited number of players, officials in the chess parlour (centre) will be diligently controlled at all times, added the federation.
