How to join

 

Joining the club is very easy. We need your name and contact details, and an indication of your level of chess experience and interests. Your name (and ECF grade if you have one) is the only personal information that we publish on the site.

 

We set the annual subscription at a level to cover our costs. The subscription for 2014/15 is £45 for existing members, and £25 for new members (those joining from 1 May 2014) and juniors (under 18).

 

Pimlico was the first chess club in the country to attain charitable status. Subscriptions can be gift-aided.
