Durham Go Club

This year is the 30th anniversary of Go playing in Durham!


We are a friendly club devoted to the playing of the board game Go (also known as Weiqi and Baduk).

We meet weekly on Monday and Thursday evenings - mainly either online or in a pub, but occasionally also college bars or University lecture theatres. Our regular sessions run throughout the year (including during the vacations) and we also run a number of other events, such as tournaments and BBQs.

Our meetings page gives more details about when and where we're currently meeting, and if you sign up to our mailing list then we'll send you regular emails to let you know what's happening. If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to email us, or see our FAQ!

Everyone - from complete beginners to experts - is very welcome to come along to our sessions.

What is Go?

Good question! If you know nothing of the game, where should you start? You've got several options. To start with, our links page has several places where you can find out more about Go and to learn the rules.

Alternatively, if you're in Durham, why not come along to one of our sessions? Go is easy to learn, and we're always happy to teach new beginners. If you're not in Durham, the British Go Association has a list of other clubs.
