RTP Girls Chess Club
The RTP Girls Chess Club primary objective is to attract more girls to play chess in the Research Triangle Park area of North Carolina. According to the statistics from the January 2020 FIDE rating list, females had a participation rate of 8.25%. As we can see, there is a significant gender gap with girls and boys playing chess.
We are determined to make a change in those statistics. That is why we launched the "RTP Girls Chess Club". We want to provide a safe, welcoming, and learning environment for girls to feel included and also have the opportunity learn the beauty of this game.
As the COVID-19 is currently impacting the lives of many, we have moved virtually and online. We will play and review chess games, go over tactics, teach lessons, and just have fun in a welcoming environment.
