The SCCA is a non-profit body responsible for organising and promoting correspondence chess (CC) in Scotland. It is a full national member of the CC world governing body ICCF (International Correspondence Chess Federation) and an affiliated member of Chess Scotland.

SCCA members are able to play in individual and team events, which may be organised on a domestic or international basis. All popular modes of play - postal, email and webserver - are available. There are various types of membership and entry fees. The simplest method is annual membership, where £10 buys you free entry into all SCCA events and includes four copies of our well-respected e-magazine. Members may also enter ICCF events via the SCCA. ICCF entry fees vary by tournament type.
