Mahjong

Group leader: Kay Thomas

The group was formed in 2003 and currently has thirty-five members, some of whom are from the original group. 

The game of Mahjong was developed in China during the Qing dynasty. The name Mahjong means “sparrow” from the twittering sound of the tiles on the board, is also known as the game of Four Winds. In 1998 the Chinese government declared Mahjong to be an official sport and published a unique set of rules which are now followed internationally, and by our group.

On the social side we hold a dinner to celebrate the Chinese New Year.
