Camberley Chess Club membership:

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

Online Membership

We started Tuesday online meetings at the beginning of the UK Covid lockdown in March 2020 to help members keep in touch, learn and enjoy chess more. For the 2021-2022 season we are continuing the Tuesday online meetings. We have a significant schedule of events already lined up, including top UK players from past and present , analysing games, openings, puzzles, endgames, consultation matches, and inter club matches.

To see the event details of some of our top UK players from past and present, click on their name below:

WFM Louise Head, IM Cyrus Lakdawala, IM Andrew Martin, IM Nigel Povah, GM Daniel King, GM Keith Arkell, GM Jim Plaskett, GM Jonathan Levitt, and the UKs top two players GM Michael Adams and GM David Howell
