Southport Junior Chess Club has been running since 2005. We are based in the Central Club, Bath Street, Southport and provide a warm and friendly environment where juniors of all ages and chess abilities can socialise and play chess. The club caters for young people aged 5 – 18 years.
The junior club between runs 6pm and 7.30pm throughout the year.
Southport are represented in the newly founded Merseyside Junior League with a team of 5 plus 3 reserves. All team members have automatic ECF (English Chess Federation) membership; thus our Junior team and the reserves will be able to obtain a national Grade from the ECF.
Southport Chess Club is a Learning Destination for the Children’s University and therefore able to verify learning activities.
We run regular competitions and structured, skill learning sessions as a group and on an individual basis but always with fun!
There is a “tuck shop” where penny sweets can be purchased and squash is provided by The Central Club.
Many of our former juniors have progressed to such an extent that they now represent our two senior teams who play in divisions 2 and 4 of the Merseyside League.
The annual cost is £15 per junior with a £1 subscription per visit.
The principals of the club have current DBS clearance; however parents are welcome to stay, provided they don’t interfere!
