Go Club
Evgoery 2nd & 4th Thursday of the month

The Go Club of Rochester Hills has found its home at the RHPL! Our goal is to teach Go to all new players and to improve the skills of those already experienced.

The 3000 year-old game has its roots in ancient China and could be considered a highly strategic board game much like Chess. With only three rules, it's easy to learn for all ages!

Stop by and compete for a chance to win prizes and enjoy the highly addicting and exciting experience Go Club can promise you.

All ages are welcome; anyone under 13 should be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
