The UK Tour 2018 is drawing to a close – so time to look ahead to 2019!
We returned to Winchester in September looking forward to another stage on the UK Tour. While it wasn’t the biggest turnout to date, it was still a very enjoyable weekend…
In late 1985, my first week in Cambridge, I played my first game of backgammon over a physical board, and started spending evenings playing long sessions fuelled by Southern Comfort and lemonade. Even though I ended up organising the university club and running termly tournaments – and eventually winning the Michaelmas Tankard – I never imagined that many years later, I’d be inviting the UK’s top players back to where it all began for me. This weekend, 62 players descended on the University Centre to fight it out for the first Cambridge Open title.
The Intermediate section of the tour finally got off to a bang with the London Open and we have our first TWI Intermediate qualifier.
Congratulations to Richard Halvorsen – London Open 2018 Intermediate Champion.
