Terengganu Chess Association was establish in 1979 by a group of teachers.They are a few name that I can still remember who help develop chess for what its today.They are Mohamad Abdullah,Abdullah Abdul Rahman,Sachlin Mail,Abdul Kadir Othman ,Cikgu Razak,Mustaffa Mohd and few other names who I don't recall.Terengganu also produce host of strong players like Lim Beng Huat,Ghalam Sani Abdul Rashid,Abdul Halim Ali,Abdullah Yunus,Alias Ismail, Muhammad Ali and Ali Haji Omar.They are early product of local chess talents.As years gone by many talented chess players emerged in the state like Hashim Jusoh andNur Ilhamuddin who continue to play in the local scene.Others maybe stop playing due to work commitment.I dont have any idea when chess is introduce in this state and almost impossible to know how.
