Wigston Chess Club

New Members

Players of all ages and strengths are very welcome at the club. There are usually a few players around not playing in matches who will give you a casual game. The club is open from around 7pm  until 10.30 pm every Thursday throughout the year.


You can come to the club a few times to see if you like it before joining.

The subscriptions for the year starting 1st June 2019 are £50 (£25 for associate members, £17 for juniors).

There is a special offer for new members - in your first year you get a reduced rate of £25, covering the period from the date you join up to the next 1st June.


If you would like to play competitive league matches then one of the captains will fit you into a team appropriate to your playing strength. Our current members grades range from around 60 to 200 so there is a wide range of abilities.

There are 4 or 5 players in a team, and matches are about once a fortnight.
