NEWS UPDATE: Friday 3rd September 2021. We are very excited to announce that live face-to-face backgammon will be returning to Ayr from 7pm on Tuesday September 14th at our new venue, The Waterfront Restaurant in South Harbour Street. 

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 venue is "The Waterfront Restaurant" 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 (friendly?) games against one another as well as internal tournaments and other competitive matches. Additionally some of our members are already participants in Scottish or UK-wide tournaments.  

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.
