We welcome new chess players. In Winchester Chess Club you can improve your skills. Come and enjoy a game or two with us!!!


New members would be very welcome, at all chess playing standards.

We would especially welcome any new members who could aim to play in chess matches against other chess clubs.

It is not necessary to have an official English Chess Federation (ECF) grading in order to become a member.

New members would be welcome to play free of charge for their first few meetings,

after which members are required to pay an annual membership fee (currently £25 per year),

due in October, to  cover the Club's operating costs. 

The main costs for the Club relate to the hire of the room at The Lido,

the annual fees payable to the Southampton Chess League and the provision of equipment.

Recent changes to the funding of the Federation means that players are encouraged to become members of the ECF,

Players are rated by the ECF according to their playing strength.

Grades are based on the results of their matches with other rated players.

More details of this can be found on the ECF website.
