Leader poised to advance chess further on W Coast

West Coast chess wizard Basil Ellman continues to wave the West Coast’s flag with pride after being selected as the Western Cape representative for coaches and managers on the executive of the Western Cape Chess Association (WCC).

According to André Lewaks, president of the association, Ellman’s selection is a vote of confidence in his ability to get the job done.

“He will play a fundamental role in assisting the province in developing coaching structures as well as the establish a functional player’s commission for the Western Cape,” he explained.

“Ellman is also well-known on the West Coast as founder of the WCC union and he has played a crucial role in developing school chess in this area.”

He has also represented various teams throughout his chess career, which includes playing for the University of the Western Cape and representing Western Province.

“He is a seasoned chess enthusiast,” Lewak continued, “and during this difficult time under lockdown he is working extremely hard to checkmate Covid-19 through playing and the organisation of online chess tournaments.”

He added that Ellman finished in the top 20 players for the Western Cape in the weekly Inter Regional Corona War Team battle. The Western Cape team beat various teams, such as Gauteng North, Ekurhuleni, Sedibeng and Johannesburg Metro.

Ellman is busy with online chess coaching, and parents wish to draw on his services as a coach can contact him at assessorbasil@gmail.com or they can call 081 725 9339.
