I hope this Chess Academy would cater to newer chess players, even yet to be born, and make them reach the pinnacle of chess.
Dr. N. Mahalingam Chess Academy encourages the game of chess in the Coimbatore region and supports upcoming younger players. The Academy organises many District, State, National level tournaments which helps the local players to come up in the game of Chess.

Dr.N.Mahalingam Chess Academy started by Kumaraguru College of Technology, Coimbatore is a fitting tribute to Thiru Arutchelvar’s vision about chess. This Academy should follow the footsteps of Dr.N.Mahalingam to contribute its facilities and benevolence to the chess players of Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu and India. Chess Academies are not much in Tamil Nadu especially in rural areas. Having this type of academy will give exposure to many talented Chess players who are not in a position to spread their wings outside their home place.
It is a great initiative which is the need of the hour. Tremendous Boon for all chess playing Children. This Academy will cherish its name for ever.
