The Auckland Chess Centre is located at 17 Cromwell Street, Mt. Eden. We are just outside the Auckland CBD, between Dominion Road and Eden Park.

On Mondays, we hold regular chess tournaments for members and invited guests. Most are one classical game per night although some are rapid events with several games played over the evening. For a schedule of these tournaments please see our Calendar. Most of our events are FIDE- and nationally rated.

On Saturdays, we run a junior chess club which starts at 5:00pm till 6:15pm.

Every month when there are no long weekenders at ACC, we run Auckland Chess Weekends, a series of two-day classical chess events to fit on a normal weekend, for our club members and invited guests to get practice and more rated games.

We also participate in Interclub chess tournaments between other Auckland chess clubs and host tournaments during weekends and holidays.
