2012 Belfast Open

Posted by ian on July 4th, 2012

The Belfast Open tournament will take place at Belfast Boat Club in the Stranmillis area of Belfast on the 1st and 2nd 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 again be played in the (ground floor) Function Room of Belfast Boat Club. (You can ask at reception if you get lost, but it’s really not that big a place.) 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.
