Reading Chess Club

Reading Chess Club is open every Thursday from 7.30pm-10.30pm. The wearing of facemasks is required. Please message if you plan to attend as we are keeping an eye on numbers at the moment to maintain space between boards

The Club's new membership year starts on Thursday 2nd September. The subscription rates are: Adults £65, Under 18s £40. If you wish to play rated games there is an additional English Chess Federation registration fee of £18 for adults and £6 for under 18s.

Reading Chess Club has three teams in the Berkshire League and one team in the Surrey Border League.  Many of the club members also play for the Berkshire County teams.

The Club runs an internal winter tournament where games are graded.  It also runs a summer tournament where the games are ungraded.

The club runs several Rapid Play tournamnents during the year and occasional simuls and themed coaching classes.

The club does have some junior members who are already competent players but is not geared up to offer coaching for beginners.  The Berkshire Junior Chess Association has a website which gives information on junior chess in berkshire.
