Membership of the club is open to anyone on payment of the annual subscription. Rates for the 2021–21 season are:

In addition, members pay £2.00 per evening to cover the cost of the venue.

Benefits of membership

Members of our club can play league matches and our club championships. If you want to keep notified, you are also able to be added to our email list. This is in line with our Privacy Policy.

ECF membership

Members who play in league matches are also required to be (at least) Bronze members of the English Chess Federation (£18.00 for adults; £6.00 for juniors). Under the new rules, you are allowed to play up to 3 games without membership. Your 4th game automatically makes you a bronze member and the ECF invoices the club for this amount at the end of the year. This is good for very occasional players, otherwise it is better to renew.

Membership can be organised online, see

Bronze membership also entitles you to play in the Club Championship and for Nottinghamshire's county teams at no further cost.

For Juniors (U18) or students in full-time education, if not members previously they can apply for one year's FREE Silver membership, see the ECF website link above for details.
