Bona‑fide full‑time students are entitled to free membership of the club (and the EBU), and additionally pay no table money for regular club games (a small fee is charged for simultaneous pairs and other special events).



There is no limit on the number of times you can play as a visitor.  We leave it to players to make their own decision as to whether it makes financial sense for them to join the club, or to continue to pay the higher visitors’ rates.  Those who choose not to join are welcome to keep informed by giving us their email address so that they receive our regular updates about forthcoming events.

Membership of the YC

The Young Chelsea is a members’ club with approximately 540 members.
Membership costs £45 per year, which includes membership of the English Bridge Union (EBU) and, for those who are not already members of another county, the London Metropolitan Bridge Association (LMBA).


Members of the club pay lower rates of table money than visitors do—£3.50 less at regular weekday games—which makes it worth joining the club for those who play more than once a month.


The Young Chelsea Bridge Club Ltd is a registered charity, which means that your membership subscription can be treated as a Gift Aid donation.  That benefits the club (and you indirectly as a member) as the Young Chelsea Bridge Club Ltd can reclaim tax on your subscription.  Committee member Paula Leslie has produced this guide explaining Gift Aid in greater depth.


You may pay a single year’s membership subscription in cash or set up a standing order to pay a membership subscription annually from your bank account.  Please use this membership application form or pick one up at the club.


Membership is usually given on application and takes effect immediately, so you can come to the club and join when you first play, and pay table money at the lower rate straight away.


In addition there are benefits brought by EBU & LMBA membership, and there are certain competitions that require YC membership.  The annual Young Chelsea Knockout competition is only open to YC members, and only paid‑up active members may represent the club in the EBU’s National Inter‑Club Knockout (NICKO) competition.
