The Newcastle Backgammon Club commenced it's 2021 season

Championship started on February 5th and will continue on the dates available on
the dates page, Covid restrictions permitting. Please see the change of venue

The club is based upon friendly competition with the main emphasis on a Club Championship rather than money play.

player per night.
There are 20 round robin Club Championship tournament nights per year along with 3 knock out tournament nights and a Presentation night (link to dates below).
The Newcastle Open Backgammon Tournament for 2020 has been held online as "The Newy" and is due for completion in October. This tournament is being run as a double elimination style tournament, different to the normal round robin qualifiers into an 8 person KO final. Results can be found through this link.
