« Experience a family holiday with a difference! »
The Gibraltar Junior International Chess Festival takes place in August each year, this year between 21th and 25th of August 2014. The venue is the Caleta Hotel and follows the successful pattern of the Tradewise Gibraltar Chess Festival, offering competitive chess-playing opportunities with an equally strong social, fun and educational programme.
The Tradewise Gibraltar Chess Festival and the Gibraltar Junior International
« It is very satisfying to see that following the success of the Tradewise Gibraltar Chess Festival the Junior Chess Festival is also being established very successfully. It is intended that, with the support of all sponsors and other affiliates, this Junior tournament will continue developing for the benefit of chess internationally, and particularly in Gibraltar where its positive effects are already being recognised. »
Joe Hernandez; CEO; Gibraltar Sports and Leisure Authority.
« The Tradewise Gibraltar Chess Festival, is often referred to as the Best Open Chess Tournament in the World. What we are doing with the Junior Chess Tournament, in partnership with the Government of Gibraltar, is seeking to extend that success to involve and engage with younger chess players from across the world, and in the time that we have been involved we have witnessed a revived interest in the playing of chess in Gibraltar amongst our young people. »
Albert Isola, trustee, Kusuma Trust.
« The Association of Chess Professionals (ACP) is proud to support the Gibraltar Junior International Chess Festival, a notable event on the global map of junior chess.’
