After some frantic last-minute entering of results, we can now announce the new Top 100 for 2016. This is a snapshot of the ratings taken at the end of the year (at the point where my family get into their usual argument: Jools Holland’s show isn’t as good as last year, they don’t do music like they used to, …) and reflects every live game where the result was recorded at tournaments and clubs across the country.
I am delighted to announce that the 2017 London Open backgammon tournament will take place from 26th-28th May at Henrietta Barnett School in Hampstead Garden Suburb, London NW11. The M1 is just 10 minutes away by car, and there is free on street parking readily available in the area. So with good public transport links nearby (Golders Green station is less than 15 minutes by tube from Euston and is also a stop on the air coach links from Stansted and Luton) everyone should find it easy to get to, whatever their means of transport.
We’re delighted to announce the schedule for the UKBGF Tour 2017, which you can find here. After a number of this year’s events were fully subscribed and with waiting lists for places, we’ve got a bigger schedule this time that also takes us to four more destinations across the country: Bradford, Winchester, Newcastle and Worcester. Do register early and make sure you don’t miss out on the ones you want!
