Congress – Hammratty


On the 4th and 5th June 2022 Hammersmith Chess Club will run its first Chess Congress to celebrate our Diamond Jubilee. In homage to a trip made by several Hammers to the legendary Bunratty tournament in 2020 this congress will be known as Hammratty.

The event will be held at the home of Hammersmith Chess Club – the Mindsports Centre in the heart of Hammersmith West London.

It will be an ECF rated and there will be three sections:

Open – 2000 and above

Major – 1500 to 1999

Minor – <1500

The entry fee will be £40 – all the details of the tournament are on this link. There are guaranteed cash prizes in each category for 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Open (£400, £200,£150), Major (£200, £100, £100), Minor (£100,£50,£50). The best woman in each category will get an additional £50 prize.


There will also be a blitz tournament on the Friday night at the Prince of Wales pub on Dalling Road – if you enter the Chess Congress then entry will be free – otherwise a £10 entry fee is payable. There will be cash prizes available on the evening thanks to the sponsorship of Smoke Brew – 1st prize £100, Second prize – £50 and Third prize £25.
