Meet Terrance

Terrance Washington, President

“Chess is a tool for life. It has enhanced my patience, critical thinking, creativity, and a multitude of other attributes. Chess has made me a better person. Now it’s time to give back.”

Terrance learned to play chess in the 7th grade. After almost 20 years, it has been a constant force in his life. After years as a tournament chess player, he felt the void of a central chess club in the Orlando area. Terrance decided to set up a corporation “to change lives through the promotion, teaching, and competition of chess.”

As the President, Terrance runs the day-to-day operations of the club under the supervision of the Board of Directors and can be reached at any time on his cell phone 407-721-4262
