7th Gibraltar Junior International Chess Festival

 

Seawave Blitz Tournament

 

The 2nd Seawave Blitz tournament for young players will take place on Wednesday, 16th August, outside the Seawave restaurant in Catalan Bay, just a few minutes' walk from the Caleta Hotel. Six or seven rounds will be played. For reasons of space it may be necessary to limit the number of participants. Below, a few images from our 2016 event.

   
 
   

The start time is likely to be around 5pm. Last year's event was a lot of fun! If you are coming for the Junior Festival, and are arriving in Gibraltar in time, please join us at this warm-up event. We do ask that you let us know in advance if you wish to take part.


The Venue

 

The Caleta Hotel. The junior event follows the successful pattern of the Tradewise Gibraltar Chess Festival, offering competitive chess-playing opportunities with an equally strong social, fun and educational programme.

   

 
   
"Experience a family holiday with a difference!"
