Find Mah-Jongg Players, Teachers, & Tournaments HERE



      A lot of people have posted announcements that they are looking for players like you! You could scroll through the entire list, but a better way to find people in your area is to use the Find/Search function in your Browser to search by city or state. You may need to try different key words for your search. After your search, if you don't find anyone, I'm sorry, but this is all the names that I have. If you don't find anyone on this list or in FAQ 4A (teachers), write your own announcement and email it to me and I'll post your announcement below. That's the best I am able to do.


      EMAIL YOUR ANNOUNCEMENT to to submit your Find Players/Teachers post. In your email, you must specify your location (just city, state, and maybe zip code; do not state your street address) and what kind of mah jongg you play (most American female players play "American/NMJL" mah jongg - if you do not know which variant you play, read FAQ 2b). All users' posts go through me. That means you cannot expect your announcement to appear within a few minutes of your sending it to me; allow several hours at minimum.

      NO SHOUTING. If you use all capitals in your post, it will be converted to lower case before being posted.

      EVENT ORGANIZERS: Please send your announcement in text-only form for easy posting. No PDFs. We can post an image here (just one image per announcement), but the image must not exceed 400 pixels in the largest dimension. Images must be JPG or GIF or PNG attachments in an email (not a link, and embedded in the email; no DOC files, no PDFs). Links must show complete URL. When announcing an event, please include the year in which the event is to occur.

    If you have already posted on this board within the past year, and if your post is still visible below, PLEASE DO NOT ASK US TO PLACE A NEWER ANNOUNCEMENT unless you have moved to a different city, or your game has changed to a different day of the week, or some other substantial change has occurred in regards to your posted information.

    Legal Notice: owner accepts no responsibility for verifying the accuracy of any of these listings--please use your discretion in contacting fellow potential players.

Subject: Teacher listing
Hi Tom
I have posted my experience on several websites, but have failed to do so on yours. I'd love to see my name listed as a teacher if that's possible. Here is my resume
Barbara Berger - Greenville - Spartanburg-South Carolina. Playing American Mahjongg 52 years, teaching 22 years, and have taught over 750 people to play in SC/NC/NY. Please contact me at :
or call 843-991-0371 Most experienced teacher in the Upstate of NC
Thank you in advance

Actually, Barbara, you're already listed in under North Carolina, New York (summer only), and South Carolina (since that page lists teachers by state). In your old listings you said you'd been playing 47 years and teaching the past 15 years, so those have now been changed to 52 and 22 respectively. May the tiles be with you! - Tom

Hi, Christine! I have a list of instructors in FAQ 4a. They're listed by geographical location. Your query is also posted in the Find Players/Teachers bulletin board - maybe a teacher will see your query and contact you... maybe.

Chicago Western Suburbs Mahjong Private Lessons
My name is Christine Hunt and I started playing Mahjong 5 years ago. I fell in love with the game and wanted to not only learn all of the games nuances, but also share my love of the game. I have studied the game extensively and play daily. I introduced the game to my golf club through a series of large group lessons. There were initially 24 people in our group. I have subsequently taught small groups that have joined the open playing days. We now have over 30 people playing on a semi-regular basis. We have a blast, love the challenge of the game, and are growing close as a community. What more could you ask for?!
I am available for private lessons for groups of 4 or 8. I have taught players that I see regularly in 2- 2 hour sessions. Please reach out to me via email ( if you have a group that would like to learn the game. I prefer teaching small groups in my home, as I can prepare the table, tiles, etc, but it is negotiable.
Thank you for your interest, I look forward to meeting more players and sharing the game of mahjong.

Hi, Doris! Of course I remember you, and fondly. The posts seeking players or seeking games are written by the seekers themselves, so I've merely forwarded your email to the Find Players bulletin board. I hope you find a player for your group, and I hope you find another group of nice people just like you. So great to hear from you! Play safe and stay healthy. Now that so many of us are vaccinated, we see that the threat of COVID is greatly reduced (vaccinated people who do catch it are not dying). I still wear my mask when I go shopping. I haven't joined any games since moving "back east," and when I do, I'll only play with vaccinated players. Sorry, didn't mean to get preachy. You and I are survivors. Keep on playing!

Let the games resume... cautiously

The CDC says vaccinated people may resume getting together. Look at me, I took my mask off!
Looking for players? A teacher? A tournament? Announcing a tournament or your teaching availability? This is the place. Have at it. Email your message to me and I'll post it here, verbatim. Like it says in the way-too-lengthy boilerplate above, if you want to post a picture, it must be no larger than 400 pixels in either dimension, and there is a limit of one picture per post.
Also, a limit of one post per year per guest (exception: event organizers who host multiple events per year). No bumping.
Teachers who want a stationary post in FAQ 4A may email me in addition to a bulletin board post. The board's pre-lockdown postings have been archived.
Play safely and stay healthy. And may the tiles be with you.
