Anand was the chief guest for the launch of the Ultimate Table Tennis tournament and the first match featuring the RPSG Mavericks against Falcons TTC. “Any sport benefits when you see the world’s best players compete. When you see how they make the difficult look simple, it inspires the fans to take up the sport. This is an excellent opportunity for fans in India to witness something special. On top of that, the format is unique and exciting and that makes a big difference,” Vishy Anand said.
It only remains to be seen when chess would get its league tournament. Starting with IPL for cricket, India now has leagues in Badminton, Table Tennis, Tennis, Kabaddi, Hockey and almost all the major sports. It's high time that something should be done in chess. Newly elected AICF Secretary Bharat Singh Chauhan speaking to ChessBase India a few days ago had said, "The Indian Chess League has been doing the rounds. We should take a call that it should start maximum by early 2018."
