2010 Belfast Open

Posted by ian on May 30th, 2010

The Belfast Open tournament will take place at Belfast Boat Club in the Stranmillis area of Belfast on the 25th and 26th of September. 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 Upstairs Function Room (the restaurant) of Belfast Boat Club. (You can ask at reception if you get lost.) It is a little smaller than last year’s room, but has a better view. :) 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 have managed to secure the venue long enough to have 5 rounds.

Latest News: We’re basically full up now, so check before entry!
