The backgammon section has now completed 11 seasons in the London Backgammon League where the other clubs for the 2017/18 season are Roehampton (2016/17 Champions), the RAC, MCC, Chelsea Arts, Groucho, East India, Home House, Hurlingham and the Union.
Fixtures with each club alternate each year between home and away. Teams consist of 6 players, each playing 3 matches. Matches take place on a midweek evening each month, between September and May, with supper provided by the home club.
The section also runs leagues and a cup tournament for members and an occasional Sunday afternoon tournament for members and guests.
Stephen Booth is the current captain, with his role, as well as the backgammon section, being supported by Ray Kershaw and Alan Briefel.
The backgammon section is open, without any fees, to all CLTC and HCC members and it welcomes new players. E-mail keeps members informed of the London Backgammon League and other backgammon events in London, elsewhere in the U.K. as well as abroad. To sign up, please contact me.
