What is the GMG?

The Chess Tutors Grand Match Gala is an INVITATION-ONLY opportunity for students from our various schools to test and measure their developing skills in full-fledged tournament play. Students have an opportunity to participate in a healthy competition that fosters camaraderie, good sportsmanship and an opportunity to gain valuable life experience in a safe and intellectually stimulating environment. Trophy winners and checkmate circle competitors from all of our top performing schools are invited to "go head to head" in this exciting "Battle of the Minds" (round robin) chess competition.
