Welcome to the Australian Riichi Mahjong Association (ARMA) Website!
We are a club based in Sydney focused on promoting the wonderful game of Riichi (Japanese) mahjong.
We have access to some automatic mahjong tables which we use to run our meetups. Our meetups are an opportunity for new members to learn how to play Riichi Mahjong as well as developing their skills with our more experienced members.
We have members who have represented Australia in various international Riichi tournaments.
If you are new to mahjong or an experienced mahjong player looking to try out Riichi we would love to hear from you! Feel free to send us an email or join our Discord channel.
