Just before Christmas we featured Backgammon in Ealing and their partnership with Harris + Hoole coffee shops. We’re delighted to announce that they are supporting hopefully the first of many tournaments, the Harris + Hoole Cup 2018.
Harris + Hoole have (so far) 37 outlets in London and the Home Counties and are pleased to announce that all of their branches are now backgammon-friendly venues. Furthermore they have supplied Backgammon in Ealing 10% discount cards for all of our backgammon players to use (and you don’t have to be playing backgammon to use them!).
The format is a straight knockout of 64 players, with free registration, and an entry fee of £25 which will be returned in full along with an extra 10% added prize money courtesy of Backgammon in Ealing. The first three rounds are played at a very relaxed schedule, one round every two months with players meeting up wherever suits them both. You don’t have to play at Harris + Hoole, but you’ll be very welcome to do so, and don’t forget to get a discount card and enjoy your coffee! The last eight will play the remaining rounds in a single day, at a Harris + Hoole branch on a Saturday in November (not clashing with Cyprus or the Manchester Open).
You have until the end of February (or when we reach 64 paid up players) to register – get in contact with Anna Price as soon as possible to make sure of a place!
