Instructor’s details:

The London Go Centre is a charity based in Hammersmith established largely through the legacy of T Mark Hall. His desire was that there should be a permanent home for Go in London. He was a diplomat based in Japan and he was awarded 5 Dan amateur by the Nihon Ki-in. The Nihon Ki-in have supported us in a number of ways including sending us professional players to oversee tournaments.

Our objects are to promote the game at all levels of interest. We offer lessons, lectures, social Go and run tournaments. In September we will be hosting the European Women’s Championships and next Easter we will be running the 1st London Youth Tournament. We also host the major UK tournament the London Open Go Congress between Christmas and New Year. This tournament is noted for its high levels of international participation.
