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

The 2017/18 season starts on Tuesday 12th September 2017.   

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

The club enters two teams 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.

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.
