This year the event was held in Guangzhou – 24 men teams, 14 women teams, 17 university students teams and 24 children teams fought for the national glory this year. Each team consist of 3 players and coach(s).

The organisation in general was excellent – the hotel is located in the center and stands out compared to other hotels nearby by its painting like garden views. It has nice spacious conference rooms where the tournaments are held and the hotel restaurant has excellent variety of different food. As well there are eating and shopping places all over nearby. Definitely the organizers did a great job in managing such a big event. I feel so relaxed and excited myself about the atmosphere around here – everywhere somebody is playing or analyzing and you can feel the excitement in the air, especially among the university and children tournament areas. The professionals are obviously more concentrated and focused on winning the next match.

It was a great event with passionate atmosphere, team work and recognition of the importance of sportsmanship. It feels the newer players are understanding even better nowadays how important is teamwork. The process is less about showing off, less of an individual dopamine push but rather a learning process and acknowledgement that everybody involved are part of it collectively and really feeling, enjoying what we are together doing is fun developing also keeping the mind sharp, not so importantly the outcome.

This was an important event but stay tuned in October for “the big game” where all Chinese players play the biggest and most important tournament in 4 years. Discussions have been started to have more thorough broadcast but we will see can it be done sooner or later in the future.

Renju belongs to the government recognized professional mind sports games group together with chess, go, chinese chess, checkers, shogi and bridge.

If any foreigner would be interested surely worth visiting the Chinese team games – feel the event was great. Perhaps there is also a thought to initiate some kind of an international open team league tournament in the future in China?
