Where is my Mahjong Community? (Places to play)

MAHJONG COMMUNITY TIPS FOR FINDING MAHJONG GAMES:

At this time, due to Covid, most events are canceled or rescheduled. 

These were events that were organized prior to COVID. Please confirm if they are still scheduled or are being postponed. Thank you! 

1. If you don’t know somewhere to play near you or where you are visiting, a great place to search is the website Meetup.com. It is free to join and search. Use different spellings of mahjong (mah jong, mahjongg, mah jongg) when searching.
2. Other members have found games by searching the Nextdoor app. Also, use different spellings.
3. When searching on Google, great searches include separate searches using Mahjong, Mahjongg, Mah Jongg and Mah-Jongg and the following terms: 
  • instructors
  • classes
  • drop in
  • game
  • newcomers or newcomers club
  • the area you are looking for city, county, library, Temple, Church, community center
4. Many libraries, continuing education classes, temples, churches, senior centers and community centers offer classes or are great resources to find a game.
5. The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute is an amazing foundation and has institutes across the country. They offer many different courses, which at times include mah jongg. It’s another great idea to search.
The information below is accurate when posted. Confirm before attending.  Please email us if there are any incorrect listings and/or for us to add additional places to play!
