Posted by James Hutchinson on February 6th, 2015

The Belfast Open tournament will take place at Belfast Boat Club in the Stranmillis area of Belfast on the 8th and 9th of August. Belfast Boat club is close to the city centre and thus relatively easy to find. There is ample free car parking space beside the venue.

The event will be played in the Main Function Room (downstairs) of Belfast Boat Club. (You can ask at reception if you get lost) The Belfast Open is an EGF Class B tournament, and will count toward both Irish Korea Points and the British Stacey points. This year we will have 5 rounds.
