Welcome to the Cambridge Go Society

The Cambridge Go Society exists to encourage people to play the board game go in Cambridge, both in the University and otherwise. It is affiliated to the British Go Association and it is registered with the Societies Syndicate of Cambridge University.

CUGOS has a membership of around 80 active members of all skills levels, from beginners to some of the strongest players in the country. The society meets regularly inside and outside term and is happy to welcome new players of any strength at any meeting. You do not need to be a member of the society or the University to play.
