The UK Go Challenge will be back again for 2020. Make sure your school or club runs a heat - it only costs 10 quid for a tournament pack for a 10 player event (plus P&P) - convince your friendly adult to buy one!

The finals were be held as part of Cambridge Junior Chess and Go Club's 25th anniversary celebrations on Sunday 13th October at Storey's Field Centre, Eddington Avenue, Cambridge CB3 1AA, alongside the National Small Board Championship. Report

Last year the UK Go Challenge Finals were also in Cambridge, on Saturday 14th July 2018 at the University Centre. These were the finals for UK school and junior Go clubs and all other junior players.
