Report and current standings here, pdf brochure here.
From Ben Phillips:
"I will be starting up a new monthly backgammon tournament starting this month in the aim of introducing new players to the game and those that already play but may not want to enter the bigger tournaments. The aim is to get together once a month for a knockout style tournament and have a leaderboard in place over the year to be both social and competitive at the same time. If you want to come every month, great... if you want to just come along whenever you can make it, then that's fine as well. The more the merrier ! If you do have a board, can you please bring it with you, at this stage we need to rely on at least 1 in 2 people bringing boards with them. If you don't have one, that's fine, come along, i'm sure we'll have enough there.
Below are the details of the tournament, if you have any questions then please contact me."
