How To

Play (and learn) Go

Play Go in a club



To discover or practice Go the easiest and most natural way is to join a Go club nearby or on Internet.
It's free to try (not free for club regular members).

Note: If you are searching specifically for "Go lessons", most of the time you will not find much "organized teaching classes" as such in clubs.
But in every club players practice, analyse games, propose Go problems to solve, share their experience... So we invite you to enter into a Go club that suits you first and play a bit and then discuss the various available possibilities to improve with players to see what would suit you (books, exercices on Internet, lessons with pro players...).
