There is also Street Chess, which meets every Saturday 11:00am outdoors at City Walk, Canberra City.

The ANU Chess Club got off to a good start with 20 players taking part in the opening night lightning tournament. First prize was shared between Lee Forace and Miles Patterson who scored 7/9 ahead of a strong field.
