This is an important reminder, particularly for those attending the Junior Club on Friday nights.

Dear Parents and Caregivers,
In the past few weeks, some children have been left in the club on their own. Some children were left at the club after closing.
We must reiterate that the North Shore Chess Club is not a child care centre. Parents and caregivers are solely responsible for the safety of their children. Children must be accompanied by a parent or caregiver in the club.

If you can't play an A-Grade or B-Grade match, you need to rearrange it with your opponent, either on a catch-up night (see Schedule) or (if absolutely necessary) at home.

News: We are delighted to report that the North Shore Chess Club received a grant of (NZ)$3985 from Pub Charity Limited. This was used to purchase a computer and printer for running club events, and 60 LEAP FIDE-approved chess clocks for use in Interschools and Junior events.

The North Shore Chess Club was founded in 1956 and has been supporting chess on the North Shore and the Auckland region since that date.

From our current premises in the Northcote Senior Citizens Association Hall, on the corner of College Rd and Ernie Mays St, we hold our club nights every Wednesday, from early January (usually!) through until mid December. Organised tournament play starts at 7.30pm, but casual visitors are always welcome for a game. If you would like to know more, please contact the Club President, Helen Milligan, details listed below, or just turn up!
We also run a junior tuition night on most Fridays, starting at 7pm. This is aimed at junior players looking for some guidance & tuition.
