The Hampshire Chess Congress & Hampshire Individual Championships will take place from Friday 3rd to Sunday 5th November 2023 at the Lysses House Hotel, 51 High Street, Fareham, Hampshire, PO16 7BQ.

A major change this year is that the Open is FIDE rated.

  • OPEN (FIDE RATED): £130, £85, £40The highest placed Hampshire player receives the Silver Rook TrophyUnder 2015 rating prize: £60. The highest placed U 2015 Hampshire player receives the Len Walters Trophy
  • MAJOR:(Under 1900): £115, £75, £35The highest-placed Hampshire player receives the Peter Marshall Cup.Under 1750 rating prize: £50
  • MINOR:(Under 1600): £100, £65, £30The highest placed Hampshire player receives the Parsons CupUnder 1450 rating prize: £40

A number of Dorset players entered last year there were a record number of entries in a venue which can not take more than a 100 participants.  Given that the Open is FIDE rated it may attract additional players.   The tournament is already a third full and there is normally a rush of entrants in early October, so if you wish to play it may be advisable to enter soon.

Full details and the entry form can be found here on the Hampshire Chess Association website.
