Membership of East Cheshire Chess Club

East Cheshire Chess Club currently has around twenty-four players on its membership list, but the premises and club activities would easily accommodate more. So if you are interested in playing, whether just friendly matches or in club competitions, all played on Wednesday evenings throughout the year, or if you are keen for a team place to play in inter-club matches, come along one evening and make yourself known.

The annual membership fee for this coming 2022/23 season commencing in September 2022 is £20 for adults (£10 if under-16 on 7th September when the club reopens).

The club reopens after the summer break on the first Wednesday in September.  We plan to hold a social evening the following week on 14th September, when a light-hearted all-play-all competition of 10-minute games will be held.

The point to emphasize is that you are very welcome to come along and try us out for a couple of evenings.  Don't be put off by the quiet atmosphere, the battles taking place across the boards can be both exciting and informative!  If you feel unsure whether your standard of play is good enough, come along anyway and we will try and help you to improve your game.  Playing chess on the internet or against your computer is OK  -  but chess is much more fun when you can see your opponent across the board!
