In a telephone interview with the ZBC, Midlands Chess Association Public Relations Director Keddy Dunira said the 11-member association executive led by chairman Wilfred Sithole is a body that will run and administer the game of chess in the province.

The chess association has coincided with the official launch of the Willenita School of Chess in Gweru, a school dedicated specifically to the learning and teaching of the game of chess among young learners.
