Welcome to Sheffield Go Club

Welcome to the website of Sheffield Go Club - a local group of players who meet to play the game of Go in Sheffield, UK.

Go is one of the oldest board games in the world still played today and has its origins in China more than 2,000 years ago. A game of strategy and skill, Go is a game with simple rules which can be learned quickly but take far longer to master.

Our club is very informal with no cost to join or play, we just meet up once a week to play a game or two, and newcomers are very welcome to join us.

Beginners welcome!

Whether you've played the game before or only just heard of it, you're very welcome to come along and join us. There is no need to know how to play before coming along - we would be more than happy to show you how to play. Go also has a handicap system which allows new players to play against more experienced players in a meaningful game.


Every Sunday evening, from around 7:30pm onwards.

We play all year round, though during the Christmas/New Year period it would be worth contacting us first to check that some people will be around to play.


We play at a Sheffield pub known as the Old Queens Head, in the centre of town, just behind Sheffield Interchange bus station:

Old Queens Head
40 Pond Hill
S1 2BG

The pub has a friendly atmosphere with a good selection of drinks though food is not served on a Sunday evening after 5pm.

What Does It Cost?

There are no membership or playing fees for playing at our club - we are a very informal group who just meet up to play once a week. All that we would ask is that you buy a drink or two from the bar to respect the hospitality.
