Membership

Camberley Chess Club online membership:

We started online meetings at the beginning of the UK Covid lockdown in March 2020 to help members keep in touch and learn and enjoy chess more.

Our meetings have included analysing games, openings, puzzles, endgames, consultation matches, and inter club matches. Our chess professional special guest events have included IM Cyrus Lakdawala, IM Andrew Martin and IM Nigel Povah, and the UKs top two players GM Michael Adams and GM David Howell.

To cover admin costs, develop content and special events, we have an annual Online Membership subscription of only £10.
