We meet every Wednesday night and the last Saturday afternoon of each month to play fun and competitive backgammon tournaments. The Schedule page has the exact date, time and location of all upcoming tournaments.


There are no membership dues or fees to join the club. Entry for each tournament is $12. There is an optional $25 side pool to make the matches even more interesting.
