No! You do not have to be a member of the Rooty Hill Chess Club to play in our events. Most of our events are open to both members and non-members. However, non-member entries are more expensive compared to member entries, so by becoming a member for the calendar year, you’ll save!
Please note that you must be a member of West HQ before becoming a member of the Rooty Hill Chess Club. These are two separate memberships.
To enter as a non-member, all you have to do is fill out the registration form on each tournament page! After filling out your details and paying the entry fee, you will receive a conformation email. If you receive this email, it indicates that the payment has gone through, and we’ve gotten your entry. All you have to do now is turn up on Tuesday night before 7:15pm.
Members will receive a separate email with the discounted entry links as well as access to the member’s portal, where you can also access the entry links.
Players of all ages and levels are welcome to play at the Rooty Hill Chess Club!
All you need to do is make sure you know the FIDE Laws of Chess and follow them in the matches.
