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.

The 2016 edition of the Wellington Club games database is now available. See the games page. I have also tidied up and improved the tournament archives somewhat. This is work in progress.

The 2017 Fischer Random and Parallel Tournament is in progress. The last two rounds will be played after Easter on Thursday 20th April. Thursday the 13th April is casual chess only.
