Members and Grading
Home About Us Members Venue Photographs Fixtures and Results Our Games Chess Patzer Magazine Links Facebook Page

We have around 12 regular members.
We also have around six 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 over 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.
