Go Happy Cup -- Playing Go Is So Fun!


GoHappyCup.com is sponsored by American Go Assocation, American Go Foundation, Santa Clara Youth Go Club and Sunnyvale Go Club. Our mission is to promote the Go game to children. Every May, we host a "Happy Cup Youth Go Tournament" for young Go players. To encourage the children to learn and play, every attendee will get a trophy and cool prizes, regardless of their rankings. The families also enjoy a refreshing ice cream party at the end of the event.
