Entry to the 2020 Congress Has Been Stopped

The 2020 Congress has been cancelled because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

However we are planning to run the 2021 Congress: the provisional dates are 12th - 14th November. We intend to open up online entry around February 2021; please check back around then.

Some Past Players' Comments

 
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.
2018 Open
 
This was my first Congress, and I found it a most enjoyable experience.
2018 Foundation
 
I thought that it was excellent to see charts and scores updated. I wish other events could learn from this.
