Brighton Summer Open Backgammon 2021

The Old Ship Hotel - Brighton Seafront) 12th - 15th August 2021

Welcome to All

The 2020 tournament at the hotel venue has been cancelled as too few players are thinking of traveling either just in the UK or more importantly from abroad due to the ongoing restrictions. We had 17 International players from 12 different countries last year.

On the Beach

There are still some players who are planning on visiting the town this August and obviously we have a good number of local players. I am therefore planning a shorter weekend of more casual Backgammon down on the beach  at bars and the Old Ship Hotel varanda. Final plans will be made when I know the numbers likely however large or small.

Will probably be multiple 8 or 16 player Jackpots for differing entry fees, Maybe even a Super Jackpot. If anyone wants to join us please do not hesitate in messaging me so I know you are coming.

Plans are now being made for 2021 for the weekend of 12th – 15th August.

The new venue will be taking backgammon back to The Old Ship Hotel and I will be negotiating room rates as soon as the hotel staff are back to work.

I wish everyone the best and look forward to seeing you all soon for some live action.
