IT will be a battle of strategy when the Mind Moves Chess Club hosts its first chess tournament at Riverside this month.
The March 22 tournament at the Windsor Community Precinct is open to all children aged five to 18 but they must enter by this Friday.
There will be three age divisions for the event and children will continue to play until the end of the day.
The person who wins the most rounds at the end, will be the division winner.
Mind Moves Chess Club president Dawida Rose-Nel said even if children had not had much practice at chess, they could enter.
``It's a good way to find out if it's something they want to do,'' Mrs Rose-Nel said.
She said chess was a great way to stimulate children's minds and create a different way of thinking.
``And it brings excitement to the kids,'' she said.
All participants will receive certificates, and winners will receive medals and cash prizes.
To enter, email your name, date of birth and contact number to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Mrs Rose-Nel on 0417 981770.
