My school doesn’t have a chess club, any ideas to start one?

Are there any after school activities at your school? Find out who runs them and speak to him or her. You probably need to find a parent or teacher to supervise. You will have to ask. Also,  ask around and find out if any of your classmates are interested in playing. Cheap sets and boards are good to have and store at the school.  They can be ordered online.  If you can't afford them, bring your sets from home.  Clocks can be fun if play starts getting slow or serious. Start at the same time every week. Be there every week. Have a tournament.

If no one knows how to play, teach them.

I suggest that at lunch time when you eat set up a chess board and

I bet someone will come to play you. Or someone will come to learn!

Play for money (1-2 dollars as a wager), to raise initial interest for your idea.

Oh ho ho. Starting a club? I have started a few, it is hard but rewarding.

You need to get people interested, and you should start having meetings before the club becomes official.

Take charge, lead it, and act with authority. Oftentimes, it will work better to tell people interested that something is happening than to ask if they want to do it.

And definitely get a teacher involved ASAP.

Teachers aren't super persons. Teachers are stupid, because they doesn't learn good thinks. We have a chess club, but never teacher learn chess. My trainer learn chess in my school. Teachers are for me nothing. Nothing, nothing, nothing. I would like learn alone, but I can't. I would like chess as a school subject, but our stupid school CAN'T. I'm give you very sorry if you like school, but school is for me stupid.

You need a teacher to help so that you can get the club going, I was not saying that they had to teach you chess! It is practically impossible to get a club going, and keep it going without the involvement of a teacher.

And you are making a generalization about teachers that is absolutely not true, Kamilotka. The teacher who runs our chess club is very good at chess.

Yes, maybe you have a good teachers, but I not.
