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

We're back baby. The season is belatedly resuming. Sadly the Julian Mazur Memorial is abandoned after after 4 rounds. Instead we will be squeezing in a six round Club Championships. Please note that as a condition of resuming, stringent Covid precautions will be taken. Eligible players must be vaccinated. All players must wear masks. Please understand that as Covid is now active in New Zealand, being around other people involves risks.
