The Winchester Go Club exists to play and promote the game of Go, the ancient board game from the Far East, known as igo (Japanese) or weiqi (Chinese) or baduk (Korean).
We meet every Wednesday from 7:30pm. until 11pm.
We meet in
The Black Boy Public House,
1 Wharf Hill,
It is easy to find, just off the M3.
(They do very good beer, and food too - another reason for coming along).
There is convenient car parking near by. The train service is good, but unfortunately the station is quite some distance away. The bus station is about half a mile away.
If you want to be added to the club list, mail me at email@example.com .
We have 6-10 players showing up every week, though we have 20ish players who come regularly. We run a ladder to help with handicapping, and skill ranges of beginners to 2-dan. Beginners are more than welcome.
We used to be called "Hursley Go Club". But we've come to realise that nobody has heard of Hursley, so we have changed our name to "The Winchester Go Club".
We are affiliated to the British Go Association. There is plenty of information about Go on their site.
We also have a Google Group "Winchester Go Club" which you are invited to join and keep us all up to date with what is happening.
