Membership Information

To becoming a member of the Canterbury Chess Club, please bring your subscription down to the club on a club night, and our Treasurer or Secretary will take it from there, including arranging payment plans as required. The best nights for new members to come along are Lightning and Grim Reaper tournaments - see our programme for dates. For prospective junior section members, bring your subscription to our Junior Development Officer on any club night.
