Amahle Zenzile Chess Cause

Just over 2 years ago, Amahle (12) from Cape Town started playing chess for the Crossroads Chess Club.  She is an amazing player and it didn't take her long to become one of the best players in her age group.


Last year she qualified to play at the South African Junior Chess Championship Closed where her dream of representing South Africa was realized through kind donations on BackaBuddy! Amahle went on to finish 5th in her age group and she achieved her South African Colours.

Soon after Amahle was chosen to attend the African Youth Tournament in Namibia. where she came 4th in her division.


There is no stopping Amahle as she works towards becoming Woman's Chess Master.

To Support Amahle's chess adventures, please support her new crowdfunding campaign below and then on the donate button next to the barometer...
