Annual Backgammon Tournament

The Squad is thrilled to announce its second annual backgammon tournament, supported by the RAC Backgammon Club and the UK Backgammon Federation (UKBGF).

Following on from the huge success last year, the  event will be held on Sunday November 25th at the RAC, Pall Mall, London, starting with a brunch, followed by an auction and raffle.

Last year we raised £6,070.05 which far exceeded our expectations and this year we hope to beat this with your help.

The prize for the main winner will be a premium backgammon board plus a prize for the consolation winner and trophies.
