In the "Congress" section of this website, there is comprehensive information about the 2019 and 2020 congresses. In due course you will be able either to enter the 2020 Congress online or download a postal entry form.

For information on the outcome of the 2019 Congress, you can access the organiser's report, which includes information on prizes and trophies. You can view the full final cross tables on the UTU Swiss Results website.

In the "Venue" section you will find information about the Livermead House Hotel, directions, and information on how to take advantage of the preferential rates that the hotel is offering to congress participants. The management of the Livermead House Hotel have been particularly helpful in the organisation of this Congress, so please support them.

In the "Archive" section you will find reports and results from previous congresses.

We hope that you enjoy using this website, and look forward to welcoming both old friends and new participants to the next Torbay Congress.

Some Past Players' Comments

 
Thought it was well run. I like the fact that I can relax in a hotel that faces the sea.
2018 Intermediate
 
Well run congress. Excellent team of arbiters. As usual everything ran smoothly. A fun congress to attend. Keep up the good work.
2019 Foundation
 
The congress was, as always, well organised and well run. It is difficult to think of any improvements that can be made by the organisers.
