Folkestone Chess Club welcomes chess players of all abilities and ages. Members can play friendly games, and/or compete for the club in the Thanet Chess league, the Kent league and other competitions. 


We meet in the  Boardroom at Folkestone Sports Centre in Radnor Park Avenue every Wednesday 6-9pm and Saturday 2-5pm The ​Boardroom is accessed via the Café and then two flights of stairs.

Prospective members are welcome to attend the club to see if it is for them. 


Fees for the 2019/20 season.

£30.00 per year (we meet twice a week and so are excellent value for money) 

To have competition matches graded there is an English Chess Federation (ECF) fee for grading matches, the fee is £27 for Gold and £18 for Silver in 2019/20. In addition there is a £1 board fee. ECF fees are not necessary  if you only play friendly games (non -competition chess).
