It now feels like I was rather tempting fate when I described previous tournaments as “hopefully the last online substitute”, and I really don’t want to be proved wrong again!
The Clubs Championship will be going ahead on the 17th-18th July, on Backgammon Studio Heroes. We already have twenty-four teams registered; we’d be delighted to welcome more and all you need to do is let me know by Thursday night. It would be great to equal or even exceed our record of 32 teams from last year – of course without the physical constraints of a live tournament, we can squeeze in as many players as Heores 3 can stand! If your club can muster two, three, or even four teams, that’s awesome – and there will still be room for you.
Entry is free as it was last year, while the winners get to take possession of the Tutchings Trophy for a year as well as some attractive medals for the team to keep permanently; there will also be medals for the finalists, and the two final teams in the Consolation.
You can find all the details of the weekend, plus who’s already registered on the main tournament page – do let us know as soon as you can if you want to take part, and team lineups will need to be confirmed by the Thursday immediately before the tournament. I look forward to seeing you all, and hope it’s a fun weekend for everyone!
