This championship was started in 2005, as a way of helping talented Indians make their way to the coveted World Sudoku Championship. Over the course of the competition in India, beginners and veterans alike are offered a chance to train, practice and hone the skills they’d need to make it to the big leagues! The Times of India will then sponsor four winners to represent India at the World Sudoku Championship 2019, which will be held in Germany.
Whether you’re a seasoned player, or just getting started, all you need is some practice. So if you want to learn, practice or master the art of Sudoku, the training ground is all yours! Learn to solve Sudokus faster, find out more about various Sudoku-solving strategies and how to improve yourself as a serious Sudoku player.
I won the 2017 edition of Times Sudoku Championship and am hoping to win it again this year. TSC has allowed me to get exposed to different variations in sudoku and has helped me become a better solver. Thank you to TOI for conducting the event and hope many more editions of this happen in the future.
The Times Sudoku Championship gave me and other solvers a platform to solve and improve our skills offline among a crowd of other participants, and also interact with them about Sudoku and mutually benefit from constructive discussions on the topic. A big thank you to the entire team at Times for making this possible!
My first exposure to Sudoku as a competition was in 2005 at a competition organised by Times of India. In 2007 TOI announced another competition, which introduced me to the National and World Championships. If it was not for TOI, I would never have known or been able to explore the Sudoku World.
The Times Sudoku Championship has been a great opportunity for Sudoku solvers to come together in a competitive environment. While being a successful platform to select the top solvers of the country, it has encouraged newer and younger talent to learn and enhance their skills and speed in solving sudokus.
