You may think that playing chess is something only elder people are good at. Well, you should change your mind about it. In October 2017, the best-rated chess players in the world are:
- Magnus Carlsem, 27, from Norway
- Levon Aronian, 35, from Armenia
- Maxim Vachier-Lagrave, 26, from France
This proves that chess is a game in which your ability is much more important than your age (really, the more experienced you are, the better you are at playing!), and it can bring together very different people (for their age, culture or social background), who can enjoy themselves and improve their skills literally everywhere in the world.
Probably, in the next years, chess is going to better involve the youngest, since online playing offers always new opponents to play against, every time of the day (and night). You easily get passionate about chess, and there is no age limit for playing. Simply, the more you play, the better you get at doing it.
