New members are welcome to visit on club nights, or may get in touch via email  – info@tauntonchessclub.co.uk

We have two teams playing in all the local chess league and competitions, which cover all standards of play from starters through to county players.

The club charges an annual £50 members fee – this can be split to £25 prior to Xmas and £25 after. In addition to this, any players taking part in either league games or our internal club championship must also be ECF registered. Details can be found here, and costs start at £18 per year. Guests to the club must pay £3 per night (first ‘taster’ night is free!). Guests subsequently joining as full members will have membership discounted by any guest payments they have already made that season.
