Phoenix Citadel Mall will be the venue of the ChessBase India chess club in Indore
When we started the first ChessBase India Chess Club at the Phoenix Marketcity in Mumbai, the natural question on the minds of our online viewers was, when would the next club start? Well, it took us an entire year, but we are happy to say that we are launching the 2nd ChessBase India Chess Club and the city chosen for it is the financial capital of Madhya Pradesh - Indore. This happens to be on the same day when the ChessBase India Chess Club turns 1 year old in Mumbai.
Speaking to ChessBase India, Akash said, "We want to invite all the chess lovers of Indore and adjoining regions to come to our mall every Saturday to enjoy the beautiful chess atmosphere. We love the sport and will leave no stone unturned in giving all the chess enthusiasts a wonderful chess ambience. Phoenix is glad to be associated with chess and ChessBase India to empower the sport in the country."
ChessBase India's Head of Sales and Operations Supriya Bhat, who has been instrumental in the chess club at Mumbai being successful for the past 1 year, also played a crucial role to work on the Indore project. This is what she has to say, "It is a great feeling to start the 2nd ChessBase India Chess club at Indore. We wanted people to play chess over the board, enjoy and get better at the game. The response has been amazing so far. We are very happy that the management at Phoenix malls have been very supportive and joining hands with us to power chess in India. I believe the chess club at Phoenix Indore is going to attract lot of chess lovers."
