Budapest, Hungary: 17-20th September 2015
Are you interested in representing the UK in this premier event?
The itinerary for the Team Backgammon Championship has now been finalised and many details can be found in the Event Invitation.
The event is organised by the EUBGF (European Backgammon Federation) in conjunction with the HUBGF (Hungarian Backgammon Federation) and as the UKBGF is a member association of the EUBGF, we are entitled to enter a team to represent the UK.
You will note that there are other non-team events organised for players as well which will be open to everybody including players playing for their national federation teams.
We are taking expressions of interest from anybody that is interested in representing the UKBGF in the team event. The only criteria are that you have to be a UK citizen or permanent resident, as well as a member of the UKBGF.
Once the number of interested members has been established, we will either formulate a team directly (if 4-7 players have expressed interest) or run a full, fair and transparent selection system to establish a team (if more than 7 players have expressed interest).
The team captain will be selected by the UKBGF board in direct consultation with all the team members.
Please note that players will need to pay their own share of all entry, registration and accommodation fees as the UKBGF will not be subsidising the event.
If you are interested, please make sure that you are available on the dates and contact Raj Jansari at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
