What's on at Melbourne Backgammon Club
On club nights we conduct various tournaments, depending on who is present.
100% of tournament entries returned as prizes.
Sometimes there is a chouette, and we hold special tournaments from time to time.
We play the international rules, with the doubling cube.
Coaching and help available - beginners welcome!.
Our regular Thursday club meets always feature our regular round robin tournament, open to all players.
You can play for nothing, or compete for prizes by entering for $10. Finishes on the same night.
Our aim is for everybody to enjoy themselves, meet other backgammon players, and play as much backgammon
as they want without being knocked out of a sudden death tournament and then having nothing to do.
Our Free Entry Tournament
