Bury St Edmunds Chess Club

Bury St Edmunds Chess Club welcomes players of all standards and of all ages, though familiarity with the rules of chess is assumed. Potential members are welcome to attend the chess club once or twice before paying full membership fees.

Juniors also have the option of attending the Bury Knights Junior Chess Club, but are encouraged to come to the main club (or both clubs) as soon as they are mature enough to mingle with adults.
Membership Rates
The 2018-19 Season
To play as part of a team, you will need to join the ECF as well as the club. ECF membership will cost from £16 for adults or £5 for Juniors. The ECF have some put together some instructions for those joining for the first time and for those renewing a previous membership. Feel free to ask questions either at the club or via our contact page. You may also contact the ECF for assistance (Tel: 01424 775222 or Email: membership@englishchess.org.uk).

Club membership fees for the 2018-19 season are as follows:

Adult (under 65) :£30
Adult (over 65) :£20
Junior (18 and under) :£20
Unwaged :£20
Second Club * :£10 off the above

While team members will need to pay for ECF membership, the changes at the ECF have allowed us to lower our membership fees.

Please get in touch with our Treasurer, Hugo Smith, to arrange payment. As ever, new players are welcome to attend an evening or two before joining.

In addition to the above, to help us cover our costs, members are expected to pay a £1 attendance fee on each club night.

* For Bury St Edmunds to be considered your secondary club, you must be a full member of another club which competes in one the same leagues as Bury St Edmunds Chess Club and, on that account, play for Bury in only the other of the two leagues.
