The Wellington Chess Club


The Wellington Chess Club will meets every Thursday evening (excluding January) from 7:30pm at the Wellington Bridge Club, 17 Tinakori Road Thorndon (see map below). 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

The club re-opened on Thursday 11th June and the first round of the rescheduled Julian Mazur Memorial started on Thursday 18th June. The online round robin was abandoned after one double round (sorry).

Ian is issuing the draw on Wednesday nights, and it is not changed after that, so you need to provide notice of half-point bye requests before then.

Remember to keep to the new rules as we tentatively move into the post Covid era - most important is hand sanitising, and not turning up if you're sick.

Some important points - please read

The Bridge Club have their own safety procedures, they have been meeting since level 2. We would ask you to respect whatever procedures they still have in place for level 1. In particular, they do not want people wandering around. Please do not use the kitchen (they are going to provide a hot water cylinder that we can use through the hatch)

What's Coming Up

A new schedule for 2020 should be posted soon.
