The first Lake District backgammon championship is to be staged here at the Cedar Manor in April. It’s a one-day event and we are looking forward to welcoming players from all over the country.
I used to play regularly when I worked in London, and it seems that there are lots of players around, especially in this area, but no competitions.
It’s on Sunday April 27 and if you want to take part, do give us a call and register as soon as possible. The entry fee of £20 will include lunch and refreshments, and the winner’s prize will be a two-night stay at our hotel.
It’s a fascinating game and not difficult to learn. Everyone who has been on holiday to Greece or Spain will have seen how popular backgammon is there, with games being played at roadside cafes by all age groups.
Our contest has won the backing of the UK Backgammon Federation and the Fibsboard Backgammon Online forum. And if you’re not sure how to play, you can now download an app that shows you the basic moves. Come and have a try. Contact us here at email@example.com or ring 015394 43192
