This runs throughout the year and is not a specific tournament. Junior players score points for each tournament they enter, with additional points being scored for each game that they win.

The top three players at the end of the year hold the trophies for a year and receive a winners' certificate plus a cash prize, presented at the British Youth Go Championship. Cash prizes of £50, £30 and £20 are provided from a fund set up in memory of John Rickard, 4 dan.

Current points

The rules are:

  1. Qualifying tournaments are all tournaments held in the UK and open to entrants from anywhere in the UK. Every tournament has a maximum number of points that you can score there. For most Go tournaments this is 100 points. For the Youth Championships, it is 200 points.
  2. You get 40% of the points just for turning up. For the other 60% you score in proportion to points scored in the tournament. For example, if you win 2 out of 3 in a tournament worth 100 points, you score 40 plus two thirds of 60, i.e. 80 in total.
  3. All under-18s (age as at 1st September of the previous year) can score points. (Note: we are often asked why September of the previous year rather than January of the current year. The reason is to link the age requirement to the school year.)
  4. The competition runs for a calendar year with the London Open counting as the last tournament. Prizes will be awarded at the Youth Championships in the following year.

One of the oldest events in the UK, this event was for many years run by Bristol club in the town hall in Marlborough in Wiltshire, a location chosen to easy driving in pre-motorway days. It then moved to Keynsham before settling down in Bath, with that club taking over running it.

Now a 3 round McMahon, but formerly 4 rounds, taking advantage of the extra hour of its traditional date, the Sunday summer time ends.

The trophy was presented by Robnor Paints of Stratton St Margaret.
