The Young Science Fiction Readers Group (YSFRG) was formed in 1960 for the BSFA's under-25 members. Its stated purpose was "to lure young SF readers like ourselves into fandom".

Jim Linwood, Brian Jordan and Alan Rispin were the founding member of this group which initially was around 30 members worldwide, including Darroll Pardoe, Mary Munro, Peggy Rae McKnight, Robert Lichtman, and Andy Main. It published the YSFRG Newsletter. The YSFRG folded in 1961.

This is a club page. Please extend it by adding information about when and where the club met, when and by whom it was founded, how long it was active, notable accomplishments, well-known members, clubzines, any conventions it ran, external links to the club's website, other club pages, etc.

When there's a floreat (Fl.), this indicates the time or times for which we have found evidence that the club existed. This is probably not going to represent the club's full lifetime, so please update it if you can!
