Eaest Grinstead Chess Club meets weekly from September to April.  Club nights are at the Swan Mead Centre in East Grinstead 7.30 on Tuesdays between September and May.

All are welcome of whatever standard. We play a mixture of graded (official) 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 casual 'friendly' games if you prefer.

During the summer months, Chess will be played at the East Grinstead Book shop in the High street every Wednesday afternoon.  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.
