The Cambridge Open 2019

June 29-30th 2019, The University Centre, Cambridge.

Join us for a weekend of backgammon in the historic university city of Cambridge. Day 1 consists of a five-round Swiss stage, guaranteeing everyone plenty of play; the top sixteen proceed to a knockout on day 2 for the title and a big cash prize; there are still rewards available to everyone else in a knockout Consolation and Last Chance. On Saturday night, for those who want to play more, there will be Consulting Doubles, subject to demand.

We will be playing at the University Centre, a fully accessible riverside venue in the heart of the city.

For the backgammon widows – and widowers – there’s plenty to see and do within walking distance and in the surrounding area.
