South Manchester Tournament 2018

South Manchester Tournament

Saturday 3rd March 2018

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

Cheadle Hulme School

Same location as in 2017 and the Northern Tournament.

(Sorry the date clashes with other events, but the events are many miles apart.)


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 enter the main tourney.
Entrants 21 kyu or weaker must enter 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 both tournaments. 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.
