Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis
Rex Sinquefield loves a good game of chess. He also recognizes that it’s not just entertaining, the 1,500-year-old game also has a tremendous impact on developing minds. To promote the academic benefits of chess and to provide a venue for the game, Rex and Jeanne Sinquefield founded the not-for-profit Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis in 2007. The center is considered by many to be the most beautiful and technologically-advanced chess club in the nation, making it a destination spot for experts looking to compete, as well as newcomers needing some lessons. Through the center, the Sinquefields also support existing chess programs in schools and introduce the game to thousands of children and adults throughout the Saint Louis community.
