Events Calendar

The BGA is keen to promote Go and so publicises tournaments and other relevant events, in order to raise awareness of them. Such publicising does not imply oversight by the BGA except where expressly stated. The only inference to be drawn is that the BGA Council is confident that, for a rated tournament, the games are refereed to a standard that renders the outcome suitable for inclusion in the EGF database (or similar). The wider organisational issues remain the responsibility of the tournament organiser.


Data Protection Please note that the results of all Tournaments are submitted to the European Go Database as described in our Data Protection Policy. The information sent to the database consists only of your name, club, strength and the results of the individual games.
