The older juniors are encouraged to join the adults and play in the Rapid play.

Cover your nose and mouth when you cough and sneeze.

We will ask each member to complete a membership form
For new parents please note that we are not acting in Loco Parentis and it is a condition of membership that you or a nominated adult supervises your child throughout a session.
If you are not remaining within the Community Centre please inform us at the beginning of the session who your child’s nominated supervisor is.

Adults and Juniors playing in Teams or the Rapid Club Championship will also need to be members of the English Chess Federation as these will be nationally rated games.
