Club Committee

A new club committee was elected on 15th February 2024 by the members, to hold office until the 2024 Annual General Meeting is held. At this meeting, Jerry Zuma was elected as Chairman, John Khan as his Deputy, Ahdir Puran as Secretary, and Keith Rust as Treasurer. Here are the minutes and attendance register.

Directions to the Club

The Club usually meets every week from about 6.30 pm to about 10.00 pm on Thursdays, at the Saint Cyprian's Church hall in Umbilo Road. From the corner of Umbilo Road and Rick Turner (Francois) Road proceed along the right hand side of Umbilo Road past Hannah Road and past Pioneer Road. Look for the AFM Cleantech sign on the left hand side of the road, and the church hall is in the cul-de-sac on the right of Umbilo Road.

Joining the Club

Any interested chess player is welcome to attend the Club for a few evenings to play social chess, before deciding whether to join as a member.

The club submits the results of games played in its major tournaments to CHESS SA (the national organising body of chess in South Africa) for rating purposes.

The club's annual membership fees have not yet been decided by the new committee. In the past, these fees were R400 for both adult and junior members, with a 25% discount for additional family memberships. Note that club membership fees do NOT include the cost of CHESS SA membership.

For further information, you can Whatsapp Mbusiswa Zuma (Jerry) on 082 731 9430.
