Young Chess Maestros from Soweto just came from representing the country in the nationals just a few weeks ago and one of them will still go further to play chess against the greatest minds in the world as she is going to play in an International Chess Tournament.

The thrilled coach Linda Makhubela expressed gratitude to the parents and guardians who have been hands-on in supporting the children participate in the classy and elegant game of chess, the chess club that meets in Diepkloof and Pimville has been diligent in participating in the game that is rarely played.

Knight Riders Chess Club (KRCC) went to play at the nationals against all the young great thinkers from the nation and coach Linda was excited and happy with his clubs performance and the resilient and determined spirit the children in his club bear.

Makhubela said, I am so proud of the young ones in the club because they never let their spirit get damp because of being short of resources sometimes, whenever we go out to play, we try to take our A-game even though we often dont have that much support, we always strive to positively represent our country and our people.

The five-year-old Nokukhanya Chauke may be very young and tender, however, players in the chess fraternity already notice her as she will be representing South Africa for various upcoming chess tournaments.

Makhubela said, We are so happy for Nokukhanya and we know and trust that she will not disappoint us.

The coach further went to exclaim how his club also has a few kids who have qualified for the South African Junior Closed Championships.
