Welcome to The Sydney Backgammon Club.


NB. If this is your first visit to the club please call me on +61 415987388 or email td@sydneybackgammonclub.org.au to alert me no later than 5pm on the Monday prior as I need to let the publican know how many to expect as Covid rules apply and they only have a 75 person allowance.

NSW QR Code Covid-safe check-in is manadatory.

There will be a default Sydney Backgammon Club requirement for player to wear masks whilst playing. If both you and your opponent agree then they may be removed, otherwise…

Masks will be provided in case you don’t have one or have forgotten it.

Hand sanitiser will be at every table. Please use it at least after every match. More is fine.

If, for some reason, you’re unable to comply with these Covid-safe rules then please don’t come and play until they change.

We meet every Tuesday at 6:00pm for a  6:30pm sharp start at The Lord Nelson Hotel, 19 Kent St, The Rocks NSW 2000. (The hotel can guarantee our use of the brewing room or the restaurant upstairs on a Tuesday and great food and beer is available).

The 7 points per round KO format will be available for the first 8 players that arrive. Registration will be $3 for the evening and $5 entry to the tournament (100% returned as prizes).

We will run further KOs depending on demand and time available.

We are usually finished by 10pm.

Beginners welcome.

(Clocks; a TD’s option if play falls behind the necessarily strict time schedule to be finished by 10pm. Nothing to be scared of)
