We have just completed the initial season of the new Brighton Premier League which started with 32 players split into four groups of eight. We had a few drop outs over the first couple of weeks as players new to any formal Backgammon decided that they could not commit to the time schedule. We managed quite quickly to replace with a few substitutes and completed the 3 month season with a staggering 30 players.
All bar 3 matches were completed out of a possible 112 (97.3%) – not too bad for a new undertaking.
