The Rhodes Park School Chess Club members were highly motivated more by the visit of the Chess Grand Master from Sweden, Mr. Pontus Carlsson who worked with the Executive Committee of the Chess Federation of Zambia on Thursday 27 and Friday 28 February to inspire the many members of the club.

They were taught many lessons by the Grand Master and his team who later donated 15 Chess sets, a demonstration board and 2 Timers.

The club was chosen to benefit from the Bill Gates Promotion of Chess in 12 African Countries.
