Urgent! Membership Application and Renewal

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic the Welsh Chess Union (WCU) has suspended charging membership fees.  Now with over the board chess starting to resume it has been decided to recommence membership fees for the period 1st September 2021 to 31st August 2022.  We have kept membership fees consistent with those prior to the pandemic at £15 for adults and £7 for juniors. 

In order for new members or for existing members to renew your membership please complete the form which can be downloaded from here and return it to the following email address finance.director@welshchessunion.uk or post it to WCU Membership Secretary, 9 Kingfisher Court, Llanelli SA151GT. 

There are two ways as outlined on the form that membership fees can be paid.  These are:

  • By bank transfer to the Welsh Chess Union Account – Sort Code: 30-98-94 and Account Number 01112471.  If you are paying by bank transfer please make sure you include your name as the reference to the payment as otherwise I may not be able to trace it when it arrives.
  • By posting a cheque with your completed form to WCU Membership Secretary, 9 Kingfisher Court, Llanelli SA151GT.

In order to enter any WCU events whether they are online or over the board you need to be a current WCU member.

Previously, the WCU has allowed the payment of memberships applications via Paypal but this facility was not cost effective for the WCU and has been closed.
