Brighton Summer Open

Brighton Summer Open 2023

 

The 5th Brighton Summer Open will be taking place between 10th – 13th August 2023 and hopefully all the problems of the past three years that have affected plans and numbers attending will be far behind us all.

The 2022 event was successful and a fun time was had by all even though only 69 out of 90 registered players turned up, a number had cancelled due to flight and train issues but many just didn’t attend which was disappointing. Four international did come but this was far below the 18 who attended in 2019.

Hopefully 2023 will attract many more players we will just have to wait and see

Brighton is one of the most attractive locations in the UK, a cosmopolitan seaside resort close to London and with Gatwick Airport conveniently only 30 minutes away by train. With hundreds of exceptional restaurants serving food from every part of the world and a wide variety of places to stay the event should not be missed

Come and join us in the future, come for longer and bring the family there is plenty for them to do whilst you play backgammon.

Breezy Brighton 2023

 

THis will be held next January and although not beach sunbathing weather is usually a great month for a break after New year.

Format and Schedule

 

The schedule below is shown for a 128 Masters main draw, if a 64 player draw is required match lengths will be adjusted and rounds reduced accordingly Intermediate will probably be a 64 draw.

Live Streaming

 

There will be live streaming of a chosen match in each round, unfortunately in 2022 there were a few connection problems and no commentary. Hopefully we can get some remote commentary in 2023
