Juniors

Club policy is 16+ only

As of the 2022/23 season beginning 30 August 2022, the Queens Park Chess Club Committee have agreed that we will only be accepting into the club those aged 16 years and older.

As most of our activities take place in an open bar area in Wellcroft Bowling Club, we do not feel we can provide an ideal setting for children to learn and develop their chess.

For now, junior players will be directed to other local chess clubs who provide the necessary facilities to support juniors. We will be reviewing this decision in the future.

Junior players with visiting club teams are welcome. Such teams must include, or be accompanied by, a responsible adult. Inter-club league and friendly games are played in a small, private meeting room in the Bowling Club, separate to the bar area.

Recommended clubs

We encourage those looking for a chess club with active junior sections in the greater Glasgow area, to explore the following clubs:

East Kilbride Chess Club

Hamilton Chess Club (Bothwell)

Lenzie Chess Academy (Glasgow city centre)

Phones Chess Club (Charing Cross)

Please contact us if you have any queries about our policy on junior players.
