“Hello all, ICCD President Gardner wishes to pass on a message to all deaf chess players:

Over 2020, all deaf chess sports have either slowed down or come to a halt. But not chess – the numbers have been increasing largely thanks to online computer chess!

2021 promises to be a positive year with several new countries from all over the world destined to join the ICCD family.

I wish to thank the ICCD Board for their excellent work throughout the year – they have been amazing.

ICCD wishes you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year for 2021.”

Phillip Gardner, ICCD President
