Innovators Chess Academy
Why Tournaments?

To understand where your child stands, it is important that you send him/her to Tournaments that are conducted by various Organizers in Bangalore.

Unfortunately, there are Coaches who are training children since even 3 years and have kept informing parents that the child is not ready to take part in Tournaments. 

Going outside your own Academy and playing tournaments will make you realize your mistakes and help you in correcting mistakes, thereby becoming a better player. Significantly, based on our observation in the last 25 years, Tournament play evolves the personality within the child and helps him/her in gaining confidence. With confidence, a child gains momentum in achieving his/her goals. 

Therefore, it is imperative that as a parent, you understand the importance of making a Child take part in Tournaments. 

Innovators Chess Academy (ICA) was founded in late December, 2004.

 We have a dedicated team who have been providing Chess Coaching in Bangalore over the past five years.

 We have organized a number of tournaments over the past decade and we are the premier Chess Coaching Academy in Bangalore today. 

ICA has a number of students from all over Bangalore, thereby contributing a significant number of entries to Chess tournaments organized in the City. Today, we rank amongst the top Chess Schools in Bangalore and also amongst the best Chess Academies in Karnataka.

We at ICA believe that learning should be fun. We believe that the connection with the children should be established before taking them on the 'adventure'.

The Monthly Chess Tournaments is an effort by Innovators Chess Academy to keep the Chess fraternity alive in Bangalore. We have received excellent feedback for each of our Tournaments, especially for the way we start and finish each of our Events on time! 


We at Innovators Chess Academy request Girls to take active part in Chess Tournaments. To motivate Girls, we have separate prizes kept exclusively for them in each of the age categories.

We request Schools to support us, in our initiative in keeping Bangalore Chess alive and promoting Chess at the grassroot levels, by sending in students to take part regularly in our Events.
