Also known as Natcor or NCCC, the cornerstone of our philosophy is to foster friendship between our members by encouraging the correspondence and communication aspects of the game from a brief note of greeting to full-blown discussions on the state of the economy, sports or other interests.
We offer a wide range of tournaments catering for all standards of play, ages and circumstances.
Unlike some correspondence chess clubs we do not charge our members additional fees to enter our tournaments. We even provide score cards to our postal players free of charge.
Although founded as a postal chess club, the method of play in most of our tournaments is agreed by the players. Post, email and webserver play are all catered for.
Natcor publishes a regular magazine called 'En Passant' and this, too, is issued free to Club members.
Our standard membership fee is £13 per year but a range of options and concessions are available.
Please have a look around our site and if Natcor looks like your kind of CC club then please consider joining us. You won't regret it.
If you would like further information please email our Secretary, Craig Douglas and he will be delighted to answer your questions.
