The competition followed the principles of the Swiss System and each category had to play seven rounds of chess, at 20 minutes plus 10 seconds per move.

Abdulaziz bin Abdullah Al-Rawas, Regional Director of Z-Corp and Dhofar Automotive said, “The Zubair Corporations’ decision to establish training centres across Oman has provided a platform for aspiring chess champions to train and continue improving their game. The training camps and championship conducted at Zubair chess centres have been supporting the new generation of players. Through the training and competitive sessions held throughout Oman we are delighted to have contributed significantly to the development of chess. This has helped in discovering a generation of players capable to compete in local and international championships. The Zubair Chess Centres have trained many students since they were established. The centres have made a conscientious effort to provide specialised chess training ambiance and expert proficiency to nurture the budding chess players to reach great heights.”

He added, “Through collaborations with many organisations from public, private and civil society sectors, Z-Corp has endeavoured to implement many sports, cultural and community programmes and activities in various governorates. These activities come within the framework of institution’s strategy that is aimed at strengthening and developing community talents and equipping them with various skills and practices.”

Ahmed bin Darwish Al Balushi, Chairman of the Oman Chess Committee said, “The response to the Zubair Chess Centres across the country have been overwhelming. There has been great demand from interested players and parents to enrol their children. We would also like to acknowledge the efforts exerted by the referees and trainers in these centres. The efforts of Z-Corp have helped in finding a new generation of players who are ready to represent the Sultanate in international platforms.”

Demonstrating its continuous commitment to all kinds of sports, Z-Corp has been a partner and sponsor of different sports activities including football, handball, ice sports, volleyball for many years.
