The ECF charges a Game Fee on all games submitted for grading. At its simplest, each player pays £2.50 per standard play game and £1.25 per rapid play game.

ECF members can gain exemption from Game Fee by taking out an appropriate level of membership:

  Bronze Club competitions, league, county championships
  Silver Congresses (non FIDE rated)
  Gold & Platinum FIDE rated congresses and events
