SAJCC 2022 @ the beach

The 2022 SAJCC has been confirmed at The Wild Coast Sun Resort, on the border of the Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal from 3-12 December 2022.

Chess SA recognizes that all tournaments take place during school holidays, which causes players to miss out on spending quality time with their loved ones.
We strive to make participation in the SAJCC a more relaxing and fun experience, by combining it with a holiday with your family. Consequently, the decision was made to host the 2022 SAJCC at the Wild Coast Sun, Eastern Cape. Now we can participate and excel, while having a blast at the coast. Get your game on and your vacation mood ready, as this will prove to provide a two-in-one for the mind and soul.
Should any player require a note to be excused from school, the procedure will be published in the Circular.

Due to the nature of this tournament and the likelihood of financial strain during this time, the LOC is partnering with local guest houses and hotels to include more options in accommodation and catering, ranging from self-catering to more inclusive hotel accommodation.
It is compulsory to make use of the official accommodation and must be booked through the SAJCC website. We are busy finalising negotiations with our accommodation providers and will open the website for bookings once rates and room quantities have been finalised.
The website will be updated by this weekend together with an updated Circular.
