Welcome to the official website of the new UK Backgammon Federation (UKBGF). At last, our very own Federation through which we can bring more and better backgammon to the nation. Take a look around the site to learn more about the UKBGF and our plans for the future. You can also register now for the first major event under the UKBGF umbrella, the UK Backgammon Open, to be held in September 2014.
All of us have ideas about how to go forward from here, but nothing is set in stone. Additional tournaments, beginner tuition, backgammon workshops, a national ratings system, standardised rules, more leagues, inter-club competitions – all these things and more are up for discussion. By September next year we hope to invite all UK players to join the Federation, with membership offering a range of benefits. Subsequently it is intended that UKBGF officials will be elected by the membership.
What suggestions do you have about the future of the UKBGF? We look forward to reading your comments below.
