The club is affilated to the English Bridge Union and to Merseyside & Cheshire Bridge Association.
The Chester Congress is played in January every year over two days. The two competitions are named after founder members of the club. On the Saturday pairs compete for the Capel Cup and on the Sunday there is a Swiss teams competition for the Latham Knox Trophy.
In addition to the trophies, cash prizes and bottles of wine are awarded.
Blue points are awarded for both competitions and entry is restricted to members of the EBU or affiliated organisations (e.g. WBU).
The match pointed Capel Cup pairs competition consists of a qualifying round (for which pairs are seated by a randon draw on arrival) followed, after a refreshment break, by a 7 table full Howell final. There is a consolation event for those pairs who do not qualify for the final.
The Swiss teams competition for the Latham Knox Trophy consists of six 8 board matches. Teams will be seated by a random draw for the first round after which they will be ranked.
The 2019 Chester Congress was held on Saturday 26th (pairs) and Sunday 27th January (Swiss teams).
