It is not easily understood whether the sport of chess was created by a single person or if it was evolved over time. It is said to have been around for many generations, as far back as 600 A.D in India, 700 A.D in Persia and absorbed by the Arab culture in 800 A.D.

The Trinidad and Tobago Chess Association (TTCA) is the local body responsible for chess. Please follow this link for more information about the TTCA: http://www.chesstt.org/

Badminton was first played in Ancient Greece and Egypt when players hit an early version of the shuttlecock, made of bird’s feathers, with a racquet. The sport of Badminton was played in the Olympic Games for the first time in 1992, when Barcelona was the host city, after being a demonstration sport in Munich, Germany in 1972.

The earliest canoes date from 6,000 B.C. though it is likely that people used similar forms of transportation even earlier.

The Americas were likely a fertile ground for canoe development, with Native Americans using cloth and animal skins to cover a hollowed-out wooden log canoe frame, while Eskimos are thought to have developed the kayak, where one or two paddlers sit in a partially enclosed seat.

In the mid 19th century a Scotsman named James Mac Gregor developed the Rob Roy, a canoe with sail, mast and paddles. He used it to make a number of expeditions in Europe and Palestine that he wrote about extensively, helping to bring the sport to a wide audience.

Within two decades, canoeing became a competitive sport in England, and clubs started spreading across the eastern United States. In the early 20th century, the sport became popular in many parts of Europe, and it was a demonstration sport in the Paris Olympics of 1924. By the Berlin Olympics of 1936, it was recognized as a full competitive sport.

 

The Trinidad and Tobago Canoe/ Kayak Federation (TTCKF) promotes and develops the sport of canoeing and kayaking in this country. The federation was accepted as a member of the International Canoe Federation in October 2004, but started to act as a body in early 2007. Please follow this link for the facebook page of the TTCKF

Dance is linked to the ancient Olympic Games as far back as the 8th Century BC. At the time, the temple virgins would perform a scared dance in a circle in honor of a god, to begin the games. 

Ballroom dance was only meant for the crème de la crème of the society and folk dances for the folks from the lower levels of the society. Usually, ballroom dancing took place on grand social occasions, social dinners and even for competitions.

The name Dance Sport was created to help competitive ballroom dancing gain Olympic Recognition.  In September 1997, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) recognized the International Dance Sport Federation (IDSF) as the sole representative body for dance sport.   
 

The National Ballroom Dance Association of Trinidad and Tobago (NABDATT) is the local body responsible for dance sport. Please follow this link for more information about the NABDATT: http://nabdatt.com/ website/dancesport.htm
