Change of venue due to increase in numbers!.
Will be using the CROWN HOTEL - 22A Waghorne St, Ahuriri, Napier

In 2016 we are moving to East Pier, a new and exciting venue on the Napier water front at Ahuriri.

Hawkes Bay Congress committee has over the years used a number of venues - this is our fifth. We believe this venue will prove to be outstanding. It is airy, well lit, comfortably heated with very good amenities. The rooms look out on to the beautiful Hawkes Bay sea scape and within walking distance from East Pier are located all the best restaurants and motels in Napier.
Car parking is plentiful and free and smoking is permitted in the immediate surrounds of the premises.
In 2016 we have included the price of lunch in the overall entry fee. The East Pier establishment is well known as a superior caterer and you can expect a luncheon of the highest quality. We know we can rely on your continuing support as we build on our 23 year reputation of providing the friendliest and largest regional congress in New Zealand.


An innovation in our programme this year is the introduction of match pointed 10 A Swiss Pairs, the first event of its type in New Zealand.

For Tournament details go to the Event Details page.
NOTE: Register EARLY for 2016, we expect this congress to be a sell out and we may have to restrict entries if oversubscribed.


Our sponsors have always been a lynch pin in the success of the Hawke's Bay Congress. Over the years they have enabled us to offer generous prizes and to keep your entry fees at a reasonable level. We particularly thank Patrick Dingemans who has been with us since the inception of the congress.
Thanks also to our other regular sponsors from George Masters Motors, O'Briens Plumbing Supplies, St Andrews Limes, Summerset Retirement Homes and Trinity Hills Wines. Please make sure that you support our sponsors throughout the year.


Book in to East Pier and enjoy the luxury of on-site accommodation of a very high standard. East Pier Hotel is offering accommodation at reduced rates for Congress weekend - refer to their website at
