Like last season, we plan to play in the Deben Annexe of the Woodbridge Community Hall. To do this, we will need charge a team membership fee. The fee has not yet been determined but will be similar to the £30 fee for the 21/22 season . Additionally, players will need to be at least Bronze members of the ECF (see https://www.englishchess.org.uk/ecf-membership-rates-and-joining-details/).
