New Jersey Open

    Keywords: Tournament

The Princeton go club formerly hosted the long-standing New Jersey Open, one of the earliest regional events in the US which was held continuously for over 50 years, moving from Bell Labs to Rutgers and finally to the Princeton campus in 1990. At its peak in the early 2010s, it drew over 200 players. It was ham-fistedly destroyed by the Princeton University administration after the 2016 event. R. I. P.

  • We're later this year because I was late reserving the space. There's only one room on campus that really works. For 2016, we're going to require preregistration and pre-payment, and charge extra for registration on-site. Last year we were close to the limits of the space. If you don't pre-register, we can't guarantee you a spot in the tournament. Register and pre-pay here: [ext]
