Editing Notes (RH 20/09/2017). I have taken the text from the Junior Site Guide and used markdown because that's what it used. The sidebar is omitted.

PROPOSED

Junior players have a range of events just for them, although those with some experience are welcome to enter tournaments with adults. This is a great time to be involved with Go when more and more schools are getting involved with the game, and Go has recently been recognised internationally as a sport by the international sports federation called SportAccord.

Please remember too that we are always interested in knowing what is going on in your Go club. If there is any help that you need, please let us know.
