Who We Are

We are a group of chess enthusiasts that are growing in number. The Hamilton Chess club operates as an incorporated society, with a code of ethics, a constitution and a privacy policy. See here for membership information. We help organise chess events in and around Hamilton in the Waikato. Some of our members compete further afield in school events, in half-day or weekend-long tournaments (see events for details). You dont have to be a champ to join although we are not really suitable for raw beginners. Minimum age for new members is 12. Members under the age of 14 need to have a parent or gaurdian on site on club nights. You can also find us on Facebook. We meet in classroom E2, Hamilton Boys High School from 7 pm to 9.30 pm., every Tuesday of school term from February through to the start of December (check our calendar to see when the school holiday breaks are, and to see what events we are running). To find the venue, enter HBHS from Argyle St (off Te Aroha St) and pass Argyle House (the boarding house) and the workshop on the right. Turn right just before the first block of classrooms and park at the flower boxes. We meet in the double storey classroom block closest to where you have parked. E2 is the middle classroom on the ground floor (the red star on the map below). Do not park beyond (or behind) the E block as they sometimes raise the security bars in the driveway and you won’t be able to get out.

Please remember: Minimum age for new members is 12

Proof of date of birth may be requested.

Also: Smoking is not permitted on the school grounds — smoking will lead to termination of membership.
