Members and Grading

We have around 13 regular members.
We also have handful of occasional players who turn up now and again for a 'knock about', so in total we have around eighteen players connected with the club.
We're a smallish club, but a very dedicated group of players and we are looking for new members NOW!

What are the numbers after the names and what do they mean?
After you've played at least five games, you will be given a chess grade, the higher the number the better the player.
In theory if you're graded 50pts above your opponent you should win every game, however I must stress this is definitely NOT always the case.
​U/G players are Ungraded.
* Fred is registered with Hetton, but is a regular at our club.
