ECF Membership Renewal Deadline

English Chess Federation

Please note that Clubs should ensure that any ECF non-member is registered by 30th June this year.

Any ECF non-member playing four or more standard games in 2017/18 (or eight or more rapid play games) in that League or Club will incur a fee of £16 in respect of grading those games. That fee will be charged to the League or Club submitting the results, not to the player. If the player has such results from more than one League or Club the fee will be applied to each League or Club.

ECF membership starts at £16 (£15 online) for Bronze membership. The absolute deadline for 2017/18 will be Saturday 30th June online, or the previous day if a player needs to contact the office.

Full details of joining or re-joining can be found at the ECF website or over the telephone on 01424 775222 (Monday to Friday, 9:30am to 4:30pm). Membership status can be found by looking up a name on the Grading database.

Dear All

This is just a reminder to Leagues and Clubs that any ECF non-member playing four or more standard play games in 2017/18 (or eight or more rapid play games) in that League or Club will incur a fee of £16 in respect of grading those games. That fee will be charged to the League or Club submitting the results, not to the player. And if the player has
such results from more than one League or Club the fee will be applied to each: a player whose League submitted 4+ results and whose Club also submitted 4+ results would generate bills totalling £16 x 2.

The way to avoid these costs is to arrange ECF membership, starting at £16 (£15 online) for Bronze membership. The absolute deadline for this for 2017/18 will be Saturday 30th June online, or the previous day if a player needs to contact the office. Membership will cover all League and Club games for 2017/18.

Full details of *joining* or *re-joining* –

or over the telephone on 01424 775222 (Monday to Friday, 9:30am to 4:30pm)

League or Club officers needing clarification of the rules and procedures – and we accept that in some cases they are a bit more complex than we have set out above – should email office@englishchess.org.uk
