How to begin

Newcomer Night on Monday

We organize a monthly "newcomer night". Every second monday of the month, from 20:15, we have a club night aimed especially at players new to the game of Go. We will explain the rules and basic tactics and play some practice games. Meetup: https://www.meetup.com/nl-NL/Groningen-Go-Game-Meetup/

Experienced players

We also welcome experienced players. Maybe you are familiar with the game of Go / Baduk / Weiqi and you are looking for real-life opponents. Try us and have a nice evening !
You are always welcome on clubnights on Monday and Friday.
