Your chance to meet Vishy Anand and the young super talents of Indian chess in Bangalore!
The Westbridge Anand Chess Academy (WACA) began in January 2021 with 5 mentees - Gukesh, Praggnanandhaa, Nihal, Vaishali and Raunak. It was a phenomenal opportunity for the youngsters as they would get a chance to train with the legend Vishy Anand and his team (Gajewski, Yusupov, Chanda and Gelfand). Two more players were added later on - Arjun Erigaisi and Leon Mendonca. All of these youngsters have performed phenomenally well in the last 18 months. That's the reason why WACA has organized an event in Bangalore on the 7th of September 2022 at 7 p.m to celebrate the achievements of these youngsters. This is your chance to attend it and meet your heroes!
