CHECKMATE 

The Arnold Sports Festival Australia believes it’s important to exercise the mind too.

And with more than 600 million regular adult players around the world – and Arnold Schwarzenegger is one of those keen players – chess has a home among the world’s best sports at Australia’s biggest fitness expo. 

The Melbourne Chess Club (MCC) – established in 1866 and Australia’s biggest chess club – successfully ran the chess tournaments during the Arnold Sports Festival Australia in 2017.

Several quick and rapid-play tournaments were held, including:
  • Allegro (13 minutes per player per game, plus 30 second increment from move 1)
  • Blitz (3 minutes per player per game, plus 30 second increment from move 1)
  • Simultaneous exhibitions by strong Masters
During the event, members of the MCC also offered coaching and a blindfold chess demonstration. Stop by, try a fun game and see if you have the making of being a Grandmaster.
