围棋协会 Weiqi Club



Qi (棋) is one of the four arts of the Chinese scholar (文人四艺). Weiqi is originated from China, and has become increasingly popular internationally because of the highly publicised showdown between a grandmaster and AlphaGo, a computer program.

Our Weiqi Club provides a platform for like-minded students to practice playing guided by experienced professional trainers. Other than numerous intellectual benefits, such as increase in memory and concentration, Weiqi also cultivate important values: integrity (be an honourable player, and follow the rules of the game), resilience (to cope with and adapt to new situations) and respect (be open and respectful of other people’s ideas).
