Kapiti 2000

The Kāpiti 2000 was a new chess tournament, open to all chess players with a rapid Elo rating under 2000. The Tournament was held on Sunday 27 May 2018 at the Kāpiti Chess Club Rooms in the Paraparaumu District Libray at 9 Ivor Trask Place, Paraparaumu.

Overall the event was a success, with 19 players turning up from throughout the Wellington area. There was plenty of excitement and top quality games, as well as some valuable lessons learned for the club going forward. We hope to repeat the tournament in future years and make it even bigger and better!
