Staying at home has become the new norm amid COVID-19. Encouraging people to stay at home has been widely used as one of the measures to curb the spread of the pandemic. Students were sent home to prevent them from getting and spreading the virus. This meant that daily interactions had to be put on hold, sporting activities included.
In light of everything, UP Student Sport, in partnership with TuksChess, hosted an online chess competition on 24 April. Interested students had to sign in online at the UP Student Sport Chess Tourney Arena. The tournament was held in an effort to create an environment where students can interact and have fun while staying at home.
