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

 
Well done again for another very pleasant and well run Congress. I have played at the Torbay on and off over many years and have always found it to be one of the very best events to play in. I also thought that the pairings print outs were a great improvement over the old card system. Small touches like the lunch deals also show that you are doing everything you can to make the event easy and enjoyable to participate in. Well done to all your team, you really have a good formula for success!

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.
