UChess

We are a diverse range of UC students and staff who share a love of chess. Many chess clubs around the country have experienced significant increases in membership as the result of the Netflix series The Queens Gambit, so if you want to learn or get back into chess, this is the best time to join! Perhaps you might be the next Beth Harmon?
This year we will be running two club nights per week, with one night aimed more towards beginners and one night being open to all skill levels. Throughout the year we will have some fun tournaments and events, with the aim of being able to enjoy chess in a relaxed environment. Our highlight of the year is a simultaneous exhibition towards the end of the year, when former NZ chess champion Roger Nokes plays up to 20 people at once.
