The Wellington Chess Club


The Wellington Chess Club meets every Thursday evening (excluding January) from 7:30pm at the Wellington Bridge Club, 17 Tinakori Road Thorndon (see map below).

Please don't try to park at the Bridge Club itself, there is plenty of parking two minutes away underneath the motorway on Thorndon Quay.

Thorndon is a charming inner-city suburb of Wellington, the capital city of New Zealand. (The coolest little capital in the world according to some people who should know). Competitive players of all strengths will find Wellington Chess Club a great place to enjoy real, old-fashioned over-the-board chess with serious opponents.

What's Hot Right Now

The Club Champs are over and the results have (finally) been published here. Sorry for the delay. Congratulations to grade winners Nic Croad, Edgar Benitez and Nathan Hall.

What's Coming Up

The 2019 season starts on the 31st of January. As soon as I've published this I'll start working on an updated Wellington Club database. I'll try to put out a 2017 edition (which I missed) and I'll hold a 2018 edition until after Congress (our rule is games from one year are held to afrer congress the next year). Thanks as always to Ian Sellen for collecting and entering games.
