Media coverage

There can be little doubt that the recent World Championship contest between Vishy Anand and Magnus Carlsen has generated plenty of welcome attention from the World’s media.   Whether this translates into membership enquiries amongst local clubs remains to be seen.   Let’s hope so!

Here are a few items of press coverage:

BBC News Magazine

BBC News India


RFI (France)

USA (New York Times)



Spain (El Pais)


Time Magazine (by Garry Kasparov)

If you know of any others, please let me know.   Also, please let me know if you sense any increase in interest in chess, either in clubs or in schools.
