Welcome to the Australian Riichi Mahjong Association (ARMA) Website!
We are a group based in Sydney focused on promoting the wonderful game of Riichi (Japanese) mahjong in Australia.
We currently run meetups in Sydney. They 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 friends in other states who run other meetups and groups for Riichi mahjong.
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, join our Discord channel , find us on Facebook or reach out to us on one of the Meetup pages.
