Notes for Tournament Organisers

The BGA Tournament Calendar is maintained as one of the activities of the Tournaments Committee.

If you have any information about a forthcoming British Go Tournament that is not listed above then please inform the BGA tournament coordinator (tournament-coordinator at who maintains the Tournament Calendar and also arranges the equipment and so on.

You are encouraged to read our advice about publicising tournaments, which explains how to get your tournament mentioned in the BGA newsletter, and how you can get a web site made for your tournament. It also tells you what you need to do with the results afterwards. You may also want to to check the Tournament Organisers’ FAQ.

You are encouraged to join the bga-policy mailing list as the BGA will discuss any potential changes that might affect tournament organisers on this mailing list.

The BGA feel that it is important to provide recognition to people who sponsor Go tournaments. If your tournament is receiving sponsorship then please inform us so that it can be mentioned on the calendar.

If you want to see what events have been hosted previously see the archived calendars for:
2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005, 2004, 2003, 2002-2000.

Hosting a national event

Some of the events on this list, for example the British Go Congress, the UK 13×13 championship and the British Youth Go Championships are the responsibility of the BGA council. In any particular year they arrange for a particular club or person to host each of these events. If you are interested in running one of these events then you are encouraged to approach a member of the council. The BGA would like these events, in particular the British Go Congress which includes the AGM, to visit as many different parts of the country as possible.
