Frome Congress

Organised by the Frome Chess Club, the annual Frome Congress is one of the most popular and friendly Congresses in the South-West, regularly attracting between 150 and 200 entrants.
The Selwood Academy venue has comfortable playing conditions. The restaurant, bookstall and analysis areas are separate from the playing areas and there is ample (free) car parking.
The Congress is part of the Tradewise Grand Prix and includes the Somerset Championships.
The Open is FIDE-rated and part of the British Championships Qualifying Grand Prix.
