What we’re up to: We usually have an open tournament running each week – play starts at 7:00pm Thursday evenings except for public holidays and a break over Christmas. Please see our Calendar or Contact Us for details. This is an excellent opportunity for keen players to test their mettle against other chess enthusiasts in a competitive tournament setting!
We also run a Saturday afternoon session running every Saturday except for public holidays, starting January 11, 2020 – if you have further enquiries, please confirm by contacting us. This is a typically relaxed atmosphere, great for new players and kids to come and have a casual game of chess or two!

For paid members, the rate is $5/night for adults and $2/night for juniors. Information on annual memberships can be found here.
