South Manchester Tournament

Sunday 19th March 2017

Main School Building, Cheadle Hulme School, Claremont Road, Cheadle Hulme SK8 6EG

Cheadle Hulme School

A new event for 2017, to be held at the same venue as the 2016 Northern Tournament.


Two tournaments:

  • Main tourney: 3-round McMahon tournament. Time limit 50 minutes with increasing overtime [B-rated]
  • Fast tourney: 6-round McMahon tournament. Time limit 30 minutes, sudden death
Entrants ranked 15 kyu or stronger must choose the main tourney.
Entrants 21 kyu or weaker must choose the fast tourney.
Entrants 16 to 20 kyu may make their own choice.
The match results will be sent to the European Go Database (EGD) for the main tourney, but not for the fast tourney. Some smaller boards (13*13, & 9*9) will be available, for use in the fast tourney, at the organiser's discretion. These will be allowed where a competitor is not used to the large 19*19 boards (beginners, students in Y6 year or younger, etc.).


Whether walking or in a car, approach from the B5095 (Hulme Hall Road) & turn into Claremont Road; then, do NOT use the Gym car park, but proceed past it and then take the next left; go between steel gates and follow signs for Main/Visitors Reception, and park in Visitor spots if possible - as shown in picture above. Climb the steps (centre of picture above) to the big green door; proceed through to the dining hall.
