Welcome to the website of the annual Torbay Chess Congress.

Covid-19 Update

With deep regret the 2021 Congress has been cancelled because of the ongoing implications of the Covid-19 pandemic.

On a positive note, we are planning to hold the 2022 Congress on Armistice weekend (11th - 13th November) at the Toorak Hotel, Torquay. We hope to start accepting entries for the 2022 Congress around the middle of 2022.

Some Past Players' Comments

 
As friendly and welcoming as you could imagine. Smiling faces everywhere. Would ask you to refuse entries from every player better than me, but if you did, there'd be nobody there! Looking forward to next year already.
2018 Intermediate
 
I found all the controllers/arbiters and organisers of the tournament extremely helpful but would particularly like to mention Ken Alexander for arranging lifts for players caught out by rail engineering works.
