Welcome to the Public Service Online Chess (Team) Tournament 2020 event page! This year, Covid-19 pandemic had caused many key over-the-board chess events to online chess platforms. The annual traditional Public Service STAR Games Chess Tournament is not spared. Undeterred by the virus, the Civil Service Club together with #ChessAgainstCovid took the initiative to prepare the officers to battle it out this year online with the generous support from the fantastic team at Chess.com. Proceeds from event registration and administrative fee will go towards the Lakeside Family Services Caring Amidst Covid-19 Fund and partly to support the #ChessAgainstCovid Grow with Chess outreach programme to bring this royal game to children from disadvantaged families.
Participating teams – Teams from – Attorney-General’s Chambers | Ministry of Defence | Ministry of Health | Ministry of Home Affairs | Ministry of Sustainability & the Environment | Nanyang Technological University | People’s Association.
