The Cambridge Open is back! Register here.

Join us for a weekend of backgammon in the historic university city of Cambridge. Day 1 consists of a five-round Swiss stage, guaranteeing everyone plenty of play; the top sixteen proceed to a knockout on day 2 for the title and a big cash prize; there are still rewards available to everyone else in a knockout Consolation and Last Chance. On Saturday night, for those who want to play more, there will be Consulting Doubles, subject to demand.

Plus: the winner, if a UKBGF member, will also qualify for the UKBGF Tour Winners' Invitational in January 2025, with accommodation included! (If the winner is not a member, or can't attend this event, it will be handled as shown on the TWI website).

We will be playing at Novotel Cambridge North, a fully accessible venue in the north of the city, with plentiful parking, easy access to Cambridge North Station and only a short journey away from the historic city centre.

For the backgammon widows - and widowers - there's plenty to see and do in the surrounding area.

For players who wish to have their games recorded for a BMAB submission, we will do our best to support you - please enquire for details. A limited amount of equipment may be available for hire and a transcription service is available for a small fee.
