Membership of the club is open to anyone on payment of the annual subscription. Rates for the 2016–17 season are:

In addition, members pay £2.00 (adults) or £1.00 (juniors) per evening to cover the cost of the venue.

ECF membership

Members who play in league matches are also required to be (at least) Bronze members of the English Chess Federation (£15.00 for adults; £11.00 for juniors). Anyone who plays in a league match without being an ECF member must pay £2.50 per game.

If you wish to upgrade your ECF membership to Silver or Gold you must do that separately: details may be found on the ECF website.

Bronze membership also entitles you to play in the Club Championship and for Nottinghamshire's county teams at no further cost. If you intend to play more than six games (adults) or four games (juniors) it is cheaper to become an ECF member than to pay the £2.50 game fee for each game.
