Camberley Chess Club membership:

We have two separate types of chess club membership, Online Membership and Over The Board (OTB) Membership. You are very welcome to join either or both memberships.

For Over The Board chess simply come along on a Thursday night to see the club for yourself, play some chess, meet some members with no obligation to join.

Once you have been a couple of times, if you wish, we can discuss Over The Board Membership or if you prefer just to come along whenever you wish, then you can pay as you go with our Casual Weekly Payment.

Please note that we often use photos and videos of our members playing chess or watching zoom meetings on this website, on YouTube or on social media. Therefore please let us know when you join if you do not want your photo/videos to appear.

Details of membership options are below:
