Chess Events EAC is the brainchild of chess enthusiast and Westlands Chess Club founder Paras Gudka.
Frustrated at the lack of reliable sources of information on chess events in Kenya or the greater EAC region, he decided to set up a website himself. He chose the name “Chess Events EAC” not only to provide up-to-date information on events in the region but also to bring together chess players from Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda and Burundi for the common goal of popularising the sport.
Paras hopes this website will prove to be an invaluable resource to both amateur and professional players looking to improve their chess skills and meet new people by participating in events across Eastern Africa.
