The backgammon section has now completed 11 seasons in the London Backgammon League where the other clubs for the 2016-17 season are the RAC (2015/16 Champions), MCC, Chelsea Arts, Groucho, East India, Home House, Hurlingham, Roehampton 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 new backgammon captain, with his role as well as the backgammon section being supported by both 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.
