The Wellington Chess Club

Welcome

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 Summer Cup is in full swing see the schedule for the 2018 club calendar.

What's Coming Up

The Wellington Open will be on as usual at the CQ Hotel on Friday, Saturday and Sunday over the Easter break. Details on the entry form here. A Vega link with tournament entrants will follow.
