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.
Go is not expensive, it's free to try and for regular members it's only around twenty EUR to pay per year.

Go rules are not complicated at all, but the strategy is deep and the first steps can be troublesome if you get overloaded with complex information provided by enthusiast amateurs. So to have a good start we recommend essentially to practice and enjoy exploring your own ideas.

Still 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, Go players practice, analyze games, propose Go problems to solve, share their experience... So if you are a beginner, we invite you first to enter into a Go club that suits you and play a bit. With more practical experience you would then be able to chose wisely among various available possibilities to see what would suit you (books, exercises on Internet, videos, lessons with pro players...).
