LIONS OF CHESS

Benidorm Chess Open Lions

Presentation

Memory, creativity and imagination.

Decision-making, the capacity for concentration, synthesis and analysis…

All these, and many more, are the benefits that chess practice brings to the youngest.

The Benidorm Chess Open organizational team has had this important group in mind since the beginning of its journey.

We only needed the enthusiasm and involvement of an important group of people: the Lions Club of Benidorm, and the generosity of a sponsor of the Caixa Callosa category, to definitely be able to launch this chess tournament for younger fans.

This is how the “Lions of Chess” of Benidorm 2021 was born.
