Australian Riichi Mahjong Open [WRC Qualifier]
December 7, 2019 - December 8, 2019$50
We would love to invite you to the inaugural Australian Riichi Mahjong Open, which will be held in Melbourne, Australia, over the weekend of December 7th and 8th 2019. This will be the first qualifying competition in Oceania for the 2020 World Riichi Championship in Vienna, Austria, and the winner of ARMO will receive an invitation to attend this prestigious event.
Energetic, cosmopolitan, artsy, and sportsy: from Melbourne’s exiting 24 hour CBD, to its exquisite suburban hubs, to its historical country towns, style and culture radiate in such abundance that it’s not surprising the city is often voted the world’s most livable. The inaugural Australian Riichi Mahjong Open will be held in Melbourne in 2019, at the Kensington Town Hall.
Built at the turn of the 20th century (1901), the Kensington Town Hall is a beautiful neoclassical building in Kensington, an inner suburb 4km north-west of the Melbourne CBD known for its village feel. Over its 118 years the Hall has hosted dances, war functions, boxing tournaments, political gatherings, a health centre, and in 2019 it will host the inaugural Australian Riichi Mahjong Open in its Supper Room.
