If you are a complete newcomer to Backgammon why not come along to one of our Club Nights? You will be warmly welcomed and we will pair you up with an experienced player who will patiently take you through the basics of the game. For your first two 'learning' visits there will be no charge for attending; subsequent sessions will be £1 per week. What have you got to lose?
