Dates – the 88th Hastings International Congress

THE 88TH HASTINGS INTERNATIONAL CHESS CONGRESS will take place at Horntye Park Sports Complex from 28th December 2012 to 6th January 2013 thanks to the continuing support of Hastings Borough Council.

Despite severe budget cuts, Hastings Borough Council has generously agreed to sponsor the International Chess Congress once again.   As well as being a traditional fixture in the Hastings calendar of events, the Congress is also a traditional part of the international chess calendar and this year favours a ten day event instead of nine days in recent years.

Events will include a ten-round Masters tournament, a five-round Christmas tournament over three days, five-round New Year Morning and Afternoon tournaments over five days  and a five-round 30th Weekend Congress on 4th, 5th and 6th January.  Full details will appear on the website and the entry details will be published in due course.

As well as Hastings Borough Council sponsorship, the congress is generously supported by the White Rock Hotel, the Lansdowne Hotel, Orion Energy, Deutsch and the Horntye Park Sports Complex.
