Membership fees for 2024-25

The annual club subscription is £40.

New members should belong to or join the English Chess Federation in order to be eligible for selection for a team. Membership of the ECF at bronze level costs £18 per year. Those players who play competitively for Kingston against other teams will receive a rating from the English Chess Federation. The ups and downs of your rating – the ECF now updates it on a monthly basis – is a handy barometer of your chess progress (or, of course, regress). In chess, you have to learn to treat triumph and disaster, impostors both, with equanimity. This is perhaps the hardest thing to learn and to do in chess. Lose with grace, and, even more importantly, win with grace.

The club has a democratic constitution: Kingston Chess Club Constitution
