We have adopted a tournament format which guarantees each entrant two matches, although not necessarily two losses.

Welcome to our  Backgammon club!

 THE Baltimore Backgammon Club, has been in continuous operation since May 2007.  Although not directly connected with the former Backgammon Club of Baltimore, an enormously successful club which operated for years during Backgammon's heyday in the 1970's and 80's, we have several members from that former club among our current membership.  Our tournaments are open to players of all skill levels.
