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 note that play is suspended during Covid-19 alert level 2 or higher (we meet online only when normal play is suspended).

Please don't park at the Bridge Club, there's plenty of parking on Thorndon Quay (under the motorway) just a short walk away.

What's Hot Right Now

The Julian Mazur Memorial is interrupted (our old friend Covid) after 4 rounds with Nic Croad and Anthony Ker leading on 4/4. Some players have annotated a few games and these are available here. An online tournament is running on Thursday 19th August

What's Coming Up

Sadly the North Island Rapid scheduled for September 25th at the Bridge Club has also been cancelled due to Covid. For the moment we are stuck in Online only mode until Covid level 1.
