Welcome to all new Durham University Freshers - undergrad, postgrad, and staff!
We're looking forward to meeting you, and teaching or playing you at Go. Our Introductory Session for new beginners will be on Monday 14th October from 7-9pm, in the Cafe in Alington House (on the Bailey, next to Palace Green). We'll be providing pizza - Sign up so we know how much to get! If you miss this, you're welcome to come along to any of our other sessions where we'll be happy to teach you - sign up to our mailing list to get regular emails about our meetings.
This year is the 25th anniversary of Go playing in Durham!
We've recently moved to a new website - apologies if you see anything that's not finished yet!
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 Wednesday evenings, variously in a pub, college bar, or in 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. While we are affiliated to the Durham Students' Union we are not purely a student club; anyone is welcome to come and play.

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.
Durham Go Club runs an annual tournament, in the summer after exams:
