Change the world


Background history:

The NMMU chess club was formed from the merger of the former PE Technikon and UPE chess clubs. The club is one of the strongest in the Eastern Cape. The club has well known provincial and national players amongst its membership. The club is open to NMMU studenta, staff and community members. The club is also continually dveloping new players by taking part in numerous local, provincial and national events.

Objectives and vision:

To create a platform for our members to develop their chess techniques and grow to be national and international chess players. More importantly, Madibaz Chess seeks to create an inclusive environment where any player of any strength can fully express themselves amongst their teammates and the broader community.
