Soweto Schools Tournament on 25 May 2013

The Soweto Schools Go Programme started in the 1990s and involved two tournaments for the participating primary schools. Since the revival of this Programme in 2012, two more tournaments were held, the most recent one being on 25 May 2013.

This most recent tournament drew 57 participants from four Soweto primary schools: Ekuphumeleleni, Usindiso, Enkolweni and Thathezakho Primary Schools. The hosting school, Ekuphumeleleni Primary, also won the floating trophy for the second time in a row, taking eight of the ten gold medals.

It was a six-round MacMahon tournament and led to a clear winner. The top fifteen results are given below:

Thank you to all Go players who showed their support by attending (David Richfield, John Leuner, Sipho Mampe, Thabiso Lemeke), and to Welile Gogotshe for his consistent efforts in teaching Go to these young children.

If all goes well, I plan to sponsor a second tournament this year, most likely in September 2013.
