The Hague Weekend tournament is the continuation of a long chess tradition. Since 1981 there have been organized 23 tournaments bij DD, and since 1982 Haeghe Ooievaar (and predecessors SV Den Haag and Ooievaar) organized 22 tournaments under different names.

In 2004 chessclubs DD, Haeghe Ooievaar en Vogelwijk joined forces. The latter merged with Haagse Toren in 2006 and became SHTV.

In total there have been organized 50 tournaments in The Hague and if the present day organizers can help it many more will follow.
