Thank you for visiting the
UK Go Challenge site!
The 2014 UK Go Challenge for UK schools (and other youth clubs) is now over!.

If you had entered, we would send you your tournament pack, so that you could run your heat at your own school or youth club before the end of June. There are lots of prizes in each pack, and everyone could take part in the national Finals on Saturday 21st June. Entry fees to the finals were reduced to £4 and £6 thanks to the Cambridge Youth Go Project.

Note we have reduced the size of the basic pack to 10 players, which makes it cheaper and easier for more schools and clubs to join in.

Each year, if your players can't get to the Finals, you can still run your own heat and enjoy the Challenge. Likewise if you can't run a heat, it is still possible to get players to the Finals.

Also we always run, as part of the Finals, a Challengers' Tournament section for all beginners and novices, including those who have not taken part in a heat.

The finals were on Saturday 21st June at Milton School near Cambridge. You can see the list of prize winners, though everyone who took part won something!

You can read about the previous Challenges on the news page and the results page.

The UK Go Challenge is organised and supported by the
British Go Association.
