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

The fifth round of the Summer Cup ran as originally scheduled on Thursday 25th February (Nic Croad prevailed in the big top board clash to be the only remaining player with a perfect score). But sadly the 6th round is postponed, because, as described in "Welcome" above, the club doesn't run during Covid Level 2. There is at least one local online battle to play in though.

What's Coming Up

The North Island Championships are on over Easter at the Naumi (formerly CQ) hotel in Cuba Street. See the NZCF Website for full details, including how to enter and the list of current entrants.
