Heywood Chess Congress
Welcome to the website of the Heywood Chess Congress, the English Chess Federation's Congress of the Year for 2014.
The next Heywood Chess Congress may be taking place next June 2024 at the Heywood Civic Centre. Further details in due course but do check back for any updates.
Heywood Chess Congress - Sponsors
It is the local sponsors that allow this event to take place - truly magnificent support from Van Leeuwen steel tubes of Bury and Aberdeen, along with Kumon Maths & English from Heywood. Without them the Heywood Chess Congress quite simply couldn’t take place. A special thanks from all the players to them.
