Membership 2016/2017 Please Fill in this membership form for the 2016/2017 season. New members and those wishing to find out about chess clubs for their children. You are very welcome and we will look forward to seeing you on Saturday at 4pm-5.30pm. Just keep in mind that we do not meet on a Bank holiday weekend. For children thinking of visiting, there is no need to be able to play chess as we all learn that at the club. Why not drop in to the junior club on a Saturday or our senior club on wednesday? Perrhaps do that for a week or two to see if you like the atmosphere and tone and you feel it is right for you. Mams and Dads often decide about membership after a little while perhaps, once they feel that their child is possibly going to enjoy a chess club!!  Schedule of membership types and fees

  1. Hi,

    My son would like to join the club from this Saturday. Could you confirm if there is a session happening on Sat, 28th March ?

    Many Thanks
    Jibin Abraham.

    • Yes the club is meeting this Saturday (28th March). From 4pm till 5.30 in Mountview . That will be the last week before the Easter break. You’re more than welcome to come along and try the club out.

  2. My son likes playing chess could you let me know what day and time u meet and would it be ok to bring him down to see if he likes it.


    • Sorry Carmel, I missed your post. The junior club will be starting back on the 3rd of September He’s welcome to come along, but I feel he might be a bit old. There’s also teenager squad that meet less frequently that he might prefer, We haven’t confirmed when the teenagers will be back but it’ll probably be the following Saturday. I’ll send you an email when I know. John

  3. Hi, I filled out the membership form but couldn’t find a phone number to speak to someone about membership. what’s my next move? Thanks, declan .
