Not all of the country is covered by our clubs list. If you’re interested in forming a club, do get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do what we can to find you like-minded players nearby. The people below would very much like to hear from you:
Brenda Donraffy is our most northerly player seeking opponents to date – if you’re interested in helping get a club started in Aberdeen then please do get in touch (April 2017)
Matt Hopkins and a few others are looking to turn a regular social game into something more formal and organised – anyone interested? (February 2017)
Ian McFarlane is looking for more players for a possible club in Glasgow – we know we’re thin on members in the area but there must be more players? (Nov 2016)
Stephanie Hayley is interested in meeting up with other live players, possibly to form a regular club. We’re not aware of any backgammon going on in Northern Ireland so we’d particularly like to hear from you if you’re interested! (Jan 2016)
Derbyshire & Staffordshire
Ken Brown (tel: 07507 147402) and a group of friends meet regularly on Wednesday evenings at the Smiths’ Tavern, St John Street in Ashbourne. They are looking for more players to join them with a view to becoming a more organised club. (Jan 2016)
Sheffield & South Yorkshire – update!
The Sheffield group are now a proper club – meeting every Tuesday at the Psalter Tavern, Sheffield. You can find them on the Clubs page.
Peter Alexander is looking for players in the Bury St Edmunds area. If you’re interested, please let me know and I’ll put you in touch.
Update: Guildford Backgammon is now up and running at the White House, High Street. The inaugural meeting will be on 26th September, and future planned dates are 18th October and 22nd November. For more details contact Jerry White (tel: 07710 761138)
Paul Taylor is looking for players in North Wales, particularly the Mold area, to get a club started. He’d be looking to arrange a schedule that would complement, not clash with, the existing clubs in north-west England. (26/4/15)
