Many North Norfolk Chess Club events involve playing games under tournament conditions, whose results are sent to the ECF for rating. In order to be eligible for rated play at standard, rapid or blitz time limits, you must be a member of the ECF. ECF membership is separate from club membership: neither one includes the other.

Further information regarding ECF membership can be found on the ECF website here.
Or by phoning the English Chess Federation Office on 01424 775222 (Monday-Friday 0900 to 1700).

Playing Chess at the club

There are two concurrent club competitions, running in the background, throughout the Season (July to July).
The Club Championship (Standard Play)
This is single-round, all-play-all, drawing for colours before each game and with a time limit of 85 minutes plus an increment of 10 seconds per move.

The Rapid Play Championship
The Rapid Play club championship is a double round competition with players meeting twice with both black and white. The time control is 25 minutes with a 10 second increment.
Throughout the year, Blitz games and tournaments are held on an ad hoc basis, usually with a time control of 5 minutes with a 2 second increment

These games are all rated by the ECF.

Playing Chess for the club

We currently have two teams in the Norfolk County Chess Association (NCCA) league.
The Seals in division 2, the Crabs in division 4 and a team, the Dolphins, in the 4NCL on-line league.

Membership of the North Norfolk Chess Club, the ECF and the Morley Club is required for club nights and OTB competitions but ECF membership only is required for the 4NCL on-line league matches.
