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 Railway Club,  Canterbury Road,                        CT195NG (Dover Rd end near the railway arches). Wednesday 6-9pm and Saturday 2-5pm 

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


Fees for the 2021/22 season.

£30.00 per year (we meet twice a week). To have competition matches graded there is an English Chess Federation (ECF) fee. In addition there is a £1 board fee. ECF fees are not necessary  if you only play friendly games (non -competition chess).
