New Go Club

You have the project to start a Go club ?
The Federation can support your project.


The Federation can provide you with a "starter kit".
This basic "starter kit" is: 2 gobans 19x19, 2 free gobans 13x13/9x9, 1 7x7/6x6 and 4 sets of stones at 50 % price.
The material is second hand but sold at very low price (half price for the stones, gobans at around 25 % of market price), therefore you should have what you need for around 50 EUR.
In case you want to buy better quality or more material, this can be done too if you are willing also to pay the price (the price reduction only applies for the starter kit),

Having to pay might seem annoying, but:
- this cost should be covered by your "club membership fee" in a couple of years
- in the case your club ceases its activities, the Federation guarantees you to buy the material back at buying price (deducing damage, if any).

There should also be some promotional / pedagogic material (visit cards...) we could give you for free.
