NEWS UPDATE: Tuesday 27th October 2020. Sadly there is still no sign of when we might be able to return to playing face-to-face backgammon, so it is with continuing regret that our BackgammonAyr weekly meetings will remain cancelled for the time being due to the pandemic. However, in the absence of face-to-face backgammon, many of us are meeting on Tuesday evenings on "Zoom" and are also playing online backgammon in various local and further-afield tournaments or adhoc events.

If you are interested in learning and/or playing backgammon, joining BackgammonAyr, or joining us online at this current time, please contact us for more information.

Welcome to BackgammonAyr.

BackgammonAyr is the name for group of like-minded individuals who meet on a regular basis to play backgammon in the centre of Ayr. Our current venue is "The Terrace Bar & Kitchen" and we meet on Tuesdays starting at 7pm. We normally finish by 9.30pm (latest is 10.00pm)!

For newcomers to backgammon we offer free sessions where you can learn backgammon basics setting you on the road to playing both friendly and competitively. See the Learn to play page for more info.

We often play casual games against one another as well as tournaments and other competitive matches. In the future we hope to be wishing our members good luck in forthcoming UK-wide tournaments including the 2020 Glasgow Backgammon Open.

There is a common misconception that backgammon is always played for high stakes. This is untrue. At our sessions it is quite acceptable to play purely for the fun of the game.

Being a highly social game, playing backgammon is a great way of meeting new like-minded people. All sorts of people come to play and hopefully you'll find us a warm and welcoming bunch of folk; so if you want to learn or play for fun come down and join us! If you have a board please bring it along - but don't worry if you haven't.
