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 Summer Cup is well underway, with record attendances.

The AGM is going to be on March 12th, there will be no Summer Cup round that night.

The 2020 Schedule is now posted, sorry for the delay.

(I am still working on a couple of backlog items; 1) The Summer Cup results and draw and 2) A 2020 update to the Wellington Chess Club games database.)

What's Coming Up

The Wellington Open is running over Easter as normal, there's a higher prize fund this year, and entries have started to come in. Get yours in early. See the NZCF Calendar for details and the Vega Page for the current player list.
