Board-game enthusiasts will go head-to-head in annual Go tournament

Board-game enthusiasts will go head-to-head in an annual Go tournament on Saturday, January 18.

The competition, held at Hitachi in Whitebrook Park, Lower Cookham Road, will see an expected 60-70 players from across the country take each other on at the ancient Chinese game.

Organiser Iain Attwell from Maidenhead Go Club is hoping for a good attendance, after bad weather caused cancellations last year.

The former teacher said: "Last year half of them couldn't get here so we had a reduced field of 40 people. It was a good tournament but hampered because of the bad weather."

The last call to enter the tournament is 9.30am on the day, with proceedings getting underway shortly after.

Iain is also keen to get people into the game. On the last Friday of each month he hosts a session for beginners.

To enter the tournament or express interest in learning to play, email Iain on  wintergarden@talktalk.net
