We see our younger members as crucial to the future and strength of the club and its membership and are keen to attract new junior members. The venue is available from 7.15pm and many younger members arrive early to play each other and enjoy blitz, lightning and other rapid-play format games: it’s your choice how quickly or carefully you wish to play. If you are starting out then see our information on Getting Started.
The membership fee for Junior (under 18) members is £10 (compared with £50 for others) and this includes a subsidy of the membership of Cody Sports & Social Club. We are investigating the formation of Junior only teams to play in the local leagues but we need willing parents to provide transport to away matches: please volunteer!
If you would like us to help with coaching then we can offer recommendations on who to contact how much and some good reading material to get you going. If your school does not have a chess club or a friendly chess teacher then let us know and we will see what can be done. We are attempting to establish links with local schools if only so they they are aware of what we provide.
