East Grinstead Chess Club meets weekly from September to May.  Club nights are held at Age UK’s premises in the Glen Vue Centre in Railway Approach, East Grinstead from 7.30 on Tuesdays.  

All are welcome of whatever standard. We play a mixture of graded and friendly games.

The club enters one team in the Mid Sussex Chess League, and runs a number of internal competitions.  However, you can also just play 'friendly' games if you prefer.

It is also possible to play a more casual 'coffee house' chess at The Bookshop on most Wednesday afternoons and Friday evenings.  Please check The Bookshop's web site for details.  Why not come down and join us there ?  

Location: Please see 'How to Find Us' for a map.

Subscriptions:  £40 for adults per year -  but come and see if you enjoy it first.

    • Promotes neural communication in the brain
