Colorado Backgammon League

The Colorado Backgammon League is intended to add an additional incentive to regular weekly, monthly and invitational tournament play (i.e. bragging rights plus a future entry TBD).  This league is entirely volunteer with personal commitments to making this a fantastic experience, while working towards growing the backgammon community.  All are welcome and not required to participate in league play to enter tournaments.  Intramural team matches (league vs. league) will be added from time-to-time to ultimately identify the Colorado 2019 Player of the Year (and perhaps region, state vs. state).  Tournament rules governing play are posted on the USBGF website. The league directors reserve the right to modify league rules, team representation and player of the year nominations.
