Between 1-9 August 2019 in Warsaw, the XXI Youth European Championships in 100-squares took place. It is worth noting that the first edition of the championship also took place in the capital of Poland. The European Championship title was competed for by the representatives of 15 countries: Azerbaijan, Belgium, Belarus, Czech Republic, Estonia, France, Germany, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Poland, Russia, Ukraine and Italy. Chess & Checkers company had the pleasure to sponsor the Championships and support the players for nine days of checkerboard battles.
Chess & Checkers decided to financially support the organization of the event because checkers are close to the company's heart. Since its Checkers Game was released in the Google Play store in 2015, the company has been encouraging and engaging members of all generations to play with relatives or computers. It is a well-known fact that playing checkers improves concentration and develops the ability to think logically, which is key to maintaining full intellectual capacity.
- We are very pleased to be the sponsors of this important event, which brings together and integrates young people from all over the Europe. It is our dream that thanks to our game, more young people will get involved in this logical game, which history dates back to the 12th century - comments Łukasz Oktaba, CEO of Chess & Checkers.
