Equipment

Our Equipment Offerings

The Kasparov Chess Foundation Africa provides access to high quality chess boards, sets and clocks at an affordable price to assist with the development of the game across the African continent. We believe that this is critical to the development of the game as the costs of equipment remain a major challenge in many areas.

The equipment we offer currently includes standard plastic chess boards and sets, digital chess clocks, demonstration boards and giant chess sets. Many of our products can be supplied at prices which offer a significant discount to the standard retail prices of similar equipment in most African countries.

We are aiming to make quality chess equipment available to the African continent at a cost that makes the game more affordable. We have hence eliminated the middlemen to ensure that players can source basic equipment at an affordable price. Our prices are hence expected to represent at least a 30% - 40% reduction to the retail prices of similar equipment currently available in most African countries.

We accept orders on the following conditions:

  1. Orders can be placed by any national or provincial chess bodies as well as on behalf of unions, clubs or schools.
  2. All equipment is sold on the strict understanding that it is not to be on-sold or provided to end users at any further mark-up.
  3. Payment is required in advance prior to orders being dispatched.
  4. Shipments can be arranged to all African locations and formal quotes including delivery costs will be provided on request.
  5. All prices include VAT but are quoted excluding delivery charges.
  6. A minimum order size of at least 50 units is typically required for orders originating outside of South Africa.

To place orders, please download the order form and return to Mr Graham Jurgensen at grahamjurg@gmail.com. Orders should please clearly state the volume of each item required as well as the names of the relevant institutions on behalf of which the orders are being placed.
