Wellington Open 2018

Date: Saturday 24th - Sunday 25th November 2018
Location: Victoria University Wellington
Entry Fee: $20 ($10 for students)

The 2018 Wellington Open will be held on 24-25th November at the Kelburn campus of Victoria University (room TBD). The University is a short walk away from the CBD and there is free parking available at the University for the entire weekend. The entry fee is $20, or $10 for students, to be paid in cash on the first day of the competition. Complementary lunch and snacks will be provided for both days, and we are planning on going out for dinner on the Saturday night.

Depending on the number of participants we will have separate categories for kyu and dan players. In this case, kyu players will be using handicaps to equalize ranks, and therefor will ineligible to earn WGC points for representing New Zealand in international competition.

If you are planning on entering the tournament, please register below so we have an accurate estimation of participants before the event and we can email you if any changes occur. If you coming from out of town and need accommodation, let us know so we can help.
