It is not easily understood whether the sport of chess was created by a single person or if it was evolved over time. It is said to have been around for many generations, as far back as 600 A.D in India, 700 A.D in Persia and absorbed by the Arab culture in 800 A.D.

The Trinidad and Tobago Chess Association (TTCA) is the local body responsible for chess. Please follow this link for more information about the TTCA: http://www.chesstt.org/
