BL Malta Chess Society


Chess are known to be a highly educational game that develops logic and tactic. These are very useful and important skills to develop as a future medical trainees.


During the pandemic a lot of students felt detached from the year group (due to travel restrictions and lockdowns). Chess would help many of us to join together (online for now and face-to-face when possible) to play and spend some quality time together.

One of the benefits of the game is the development of logic, tactic and critical thinking. 'Malta Chess' would help developing them through regular games and teaching sessions.

It is usually mistakenly assumed that chess is boring, dull and uneventful game. We as a team are ready to fight that stereotype 

Our cohort is pretty small and when new students arrive on campus, it feels like that there is not that much of student life going on. And due to the lockdowns all over the world we felt that it would be awesome to create a safe and fascinating way to connect and to socialise within current restrictions. This year a lot of people throughout all year groups here in Malta found chess an interesting and driving game, a lot of us met new people whilst playing and, most importantly, a lot of people found this game extremely relieving for their mental health (which is very important especially during these hard times of isolation and constant anxiety). We feel that setting up Chess society would be able to unite even more people in this cohort over this intellectual game, drawing attention to BLSMD Malta and this beautiful island.

 We provide all the equipment and if you aren't sure whether you are ready to join- always feel free to pop in and give it a try!
