Our small but growing group is made up of people who have never played Mahjong; some who have played as children; and others who have not played for 30 years or more.

Play is based on the British Mahjong Association (BMJA), and we have copies of the U3A Mahjong Groups Manual that we frequently refer to. Members may borrow one of the manuals for a fortnight, and there are handouts on basic play and scoring for members to keep.

If you have never seen Mahjong being played, you can look at the following two youtube videos to get some idea:- Click here (10 minutes) and here (8.49 minutes).
