The BGA is currently aware of around 75 active Go Clubs in the UK - but we'd like to know more to give us a better idea of what we can do to help clubs and what clubs can do that's good for, for example, recruitment.

After a 4 year gap, Guildford-based West Surrey Go Club won the Thames Valley Team Tournament for a second time, winning ahead of teams from Maidenhead, Bracknell and Reading. Mark Nubbert from West Surrey led his team by being the only player with three wins. The winners in the traditional 10x10 side event were Xinyi Lu with 7 wins and Tony Atkins with 4/4.
With a somewhat more scratch team than usual (Matthew couldn't play etc.) we lost 1-3 against Slovenia.
Thanks to Jonathan Chin for stepping up at the last minute to play board 4. He was leading with a huge centre, but then there was an unfavourable big exchange in a ko and he ended up losing by 1.5 points.
