So far we've received more than 60 entries for these three events, but it's a little disappointing that we don't have any UK players in the Under-20 Championship yet, especially with the prize of a trip to the World Under-20 Championship in Japan.

The entries we do have for the Under-20 range from 2 dan to 6 dan in strength, so it's definitely going to be a challenging tournament for any entrant.

We'd like to see more UK players in all the events, so if you know of someone young who might like to play (there's no entry fee) please get in contact with them and persuade them to come along.

Just in case you haven't already heard:

The winner in the Under-20 category (age as at 1st January 2014) will gain a place in the GLOBIS Cup World Youth Go Championship, to be held in Japan on 8 - 11 May 2014 at the Graduate School of Management, GLOBIS University in Tokyo, Japan.

All expenses will be paid, with the exception of the flights.
