The legacy of Shri Bishan Singh Ji
V4 CHESS’s first Tournament is named after Late. Shri Bishan Singh ji who was a prominent Chess Player, Coach, National Arbiter, APCA-Office Bearer and Organizer. To promote any sport, one must be passionate about it and passion for the game of chess came naturally to Bishan Singh ji. Although he was a district Champion, Bishan Singh ji knew that Chess had to be promoted to the level where it can be looked upon as a career option for young and budding talents. His work first started in Karimnagar, with laying the foundation of Karimnagar district chess association and eventually progressed to other districts of the state. He became the office bearer of AP State Chess Association in the early nineties. He worked selflessly in making chess popular in the state. An example of which can be seen in all his four sons whom he encouraged to play chess and they were all successful national level players and finished in the medal bracket multiple times in national championships. His sons take great pride in conducting his memorial tournament with family and friends and taking his legacy forward.
His family is conducting State Level Tournaments in his memory since 2017.
