Club Information

As a Northern Suburbs located club we enable senior players of varying standards to enjoy chess. To try to ensure close games for all players, for most rated tournaments we allocate players into all-play-all groups with those of a similar strength (rating).

In between the rated tournaments, we have ones with quicker time controls that have multiple games played per player each week. See the club calendar for details of tournaments this year, the results page for results of tournaments, and the ratings page which indicates the range of players.

Most rated games finish between 9pm & 10pm with the last games usually ending about 10.30pm. We also have a couple of tables set up for those that wish to play social games or to analyse with their opponent after their tournament game. The chess equipment and refreshments (tea, coffee & biscuits) are provided and there are chess books that can be freely borrowed.

If you are only used to playing online or returning to play after a gap of many years, we hope that you consider coming along for some enjoyable games.

The Club meets in the multi-purpose room at North Woodvale Primary School on Wednesdays from 7pm with coaching on a demonstration board. Tournaments start promptly at 7.30pm. Contact Rob Maris, Tel. 0434 018 624 or email
