Time for chess in Estepona

LOCALS and visitors out for a stroll on Estepona seafront promenade are invited to stop off for a free game at the town’s four unique 20 square metre chess boards.
Due to the popularity of the game in the Costa town, the council also plans to provide six tabletop chess sets on the site, near the Correos post offices, from 7.30pm onwards Mondays to Fridays and municipal chess school teacher Miguel Abril will be on hand to offer tips.
Since Estepona decided to encourage the mentally-stimulating game four years ago and created its municipal chess school, Abril has taught more than 1,800 pupils at 14 primary and six secondary schools including Andalucian champion Alejandro Perez, who also came second at the 2014 Spanish chess championships.
