Why did we create the Young Masters?
When kids have something greater to aspire to they become even more motivated to improve! The Young Masters takes place alongside our regular Round Robin divisional event, and so kids playing in the Round Robin can see some of the strongest young players Hong Kong has to offer in action.
The most experienced players amongst those in the Round Robin can even have a chance to qualify for the Young Masters by placing 1st or 2nd in division A, the highest division in that event.
