Welcome to the website of S.V. Shah Mata


"Shah Mata" means "The king is dead". That's really what chess is all about. How can you get your opponent's king on his knees as quickly or as beautifully as possible?

Shah Mata is a chess club that plays in Rotterdam-Zuid. We were founded on September 9, 1970, and emerged from a merger of the chess clubs De Zwarte Dame and Gambiet.

After a steady decline due to corona, the number of members is now increasing again and currently amounts to 45 members. On club evenings (Tuesday evenings), there are currently an average of about 20 enthusiastic chess players present.

Don't hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions. We're always happy to help!
