The event continues under new management from 2021!
Bath Go Club organised the Wessex Go Tournament for several years. We took over from Bristol when the traditional venue, Marlborough Town Hall, became unviable due to dramatically increased hire costs.
Many Go players have fond memories of the Marlborough tournaments. Venue, location and organisation combined to make them special.
The tournament settled at St. Mark's Community Centre in Bath after trialling another venue in Keynsham.
The 50th Wessex in 2019 was an anniversary event hosted by Bristol Go Club in Bristol.
We skipped 2020 due to COVID-19.
From 2021, Bristol Go Club continues organisation at St. Mark's.
The tournament's page is now bristolgo.co.uk/wessex.html. It is always held on the Sunday in October when British Summer Time ends, giving people an extra hour to arrive.
