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 final two rounds of the Rapid Champs this Thursday the 18th July will decide this year's champion.

What's Coming Up

After the Rapid comes the one night Blitz Championship, then we move on to the ever popular Julian Mazur memorial.
