On October 1, in 17 districts of Antalya, chess was taken to amazing historical places under the Turkish Chess Federation’s project “Chess meets history”. About a thousand players took part, with chess boards being placed in Alanya Castle and ancient cities Phaselis, Perge, Finike, and other landmarks. The Turkish Chess Federation is planning to expand this project to all historical points of the county.
Another interesting project by the Turkish Chess Federation “Chess in Streets” has been held for the sixth time this year from September 12 to September 20, 2020, with hundreds of players from all over the country participating under the motto “put on your mask, keep your distance and make your move”. They supported this initiative by playing chess in gardens, streets, seasides, mountains, and forests.
