Upcoming Australasian Tournaments

 


2022 Australian Open
Initial Details per Simon Woodhead

The format will be similar to 2021 but with a few enhancements...

The Australian Open will be low entry - $50, with optional
$25, $50 and $75 side pools. You can enter all sidepools or none
or whatever combination you like, so you can enter at any price
point between $50 and $200. Further, it will be a double elimination
event with progressive consolation.

The Masters will become a limited entry high-roller event. Limited
to 32 players, entry will be $500. With a full field, first prize
will be $10,000 (enough to get you to Monte Carlo next year!). We
encourage club and tournament organisers to run satellites for the
Masters (and Open if you wish). Contact us if you'd like to run satellites.

The ever popular Speedgammon will again provide an opportunity
to win a major title. $50 entry with rebuys until field is full.

There will be a Sunday Tournament and we're also considering a
doubles tournament, just for some extra fun (depends on numbers).

Last but not least, we are always looking for sponsors to add
value to the tournament and to help promote backgammon in
Australia. If you, or your company, or someone you know has
a passion for backgammon and is willing to provide goods,
services or even hard cash to support our great game, we'd love
to hear from you. Without sponsors, we have to cover costs like
trophies and room hire from entry fees. More sponsors equals
more prizemoney, simple as that :-)

Website, rego forms and all the other details coming soon.
