Getting started...

This is the new Website for the Southend Easter Chess Congress, which will take place this year from 14-17 April 2017 at the same venue as before:

Southend Adult Community College, Ambleside Drive, Southend-on-Sea, Essex, SS1 2UN

Online Entry form is now available: 2017 Entry Form

This new site is in course of construction.




Website features

You can find these features on the 2018 Congress menu, or simply click the links below!

Linked features are available now. Non-linked features will be available in due course.

We have access to a small number of sensory boards and plan to broadcast the top three games in the FIDE Open each round. Currently we are showing a test page from New York 1927. This new DGT LiveChess Cloud format is best viewed with Microsoft Edge, Chrome, Safari and Firefox, but it doesn't work so well with IE11.
