What is the purpose of the Chess club?
The Chess club was reformed to promote chess and to provide the community of the University of Stirling with a way to mentally engage their abilities.
History of Modern chess:
It is said that the origin of chess was in India. However, it was improved by the Persians and then spread by the Arabs once they conquered Persia(modern-day Iran). Later it was introduced to Iberia(modern-day Spain and Portugal) by Arabian Moors and from then on it spread throughout Continental Europe.
Rules of chess evolved throughout the ages but it’s modern rules were finally set in 1952 when FIDE(Fédération Internationale des Échecs) created the Permanent Commission for the Rules of Chess.
