Backgammon Blog

We are pleased to say that live backgammon has returned to the Club. A photo of the first live session for sixteen months is shown as the players enjoyed the fine weather in our gardens.


For the moment we will continue to run an online session every Tuesday between 16:00 and 17:30 and the live indoor Teatime Backgammon session has resumed in its normal slot of 16:00 to 18:00 on Thursday afternoons. We will shortly be announcing details of monthly Club evenings.


The delayed Club Championship is about to start. For this year only we will be running it as a knockout tournament using the double elimination format.


There is a meeting of the London League Captains this week and we expect that the 2021-2022 league season will run as normal with matches against the nine other clubs taking place between October and May.
