Chess in Egham

Egham Chess  Academy 

Chess is an ancient game that is said to have originated in Eastern India c. 280–550 CE in the Gupta Empire.  It’s a strategic and complex game that requires thinking and planning. Chess is a game of kings and queens.

Recent studies have shown that chess has a particularly positive effect on the development of primary school children.  These findings have convinced the educators in Hungary, Spain and Armenia to officially adopt chess as part of the school curriculum.

Egham Chess Academy provides the local community with a place where children (6-15 years old) can learn and improve their chess skills. This, in turn, helps improve their concentration and maths skills while introducing children to concepts such as symmetry, space, movement, timing and coordination of resources.

The academy was founded by Mat Uramovski, an expert chess player with more than twenty years of tournament experience.  He competes at 4NCL for the Fermented Sharks, the Hounslow Chess Club, the Slough Chess Club and the Middlesex County League.  Mat holds a Baccalaureate in Art History, Baccalaureate in Film Production and a Postgraduate Certificate in Online Education.  He also teaches chess at Langley Hall Primary Academy and Fulmer Infant School.
