This weekend away will be as inviting to long suffering, non-playing partners as it is to the Backgammon players themselves.
The World Cup tournament format will provide plenty of Backgammon action for all players throughout both days, making it attractive to experts and novices alike.
Free Yoga classes for all, local walks and an abundance of neighbouring places of interest will make this a weekend away that you really can bring your non-playing family and friends to.
"You need a great deal of luck to get into the Cotswolds Invitational, Mr Bond."
"Then I will use Player's Privilege and register early ...it's all in the wrist."
With an emphasis on something for everyone in a relaxed environment, the inexperienced dipping their toes into Tournament Backgammon for the first time will be mingling with and playing against some of the best players in the UK. The Cotswolds Invitational, capped at 32 players, promises once again to be one of the most talked about events of 2017 as it was in 2016.
Are you a Backgammon player with bad posture, a stiff back and aching shoulders made worse from spending too many hours hunched over a board? Are you a Backgammon Widow(er), fed up that you are the one left at home whilst your BG-playing partner swans off again for another weekend away?
.A delightful hotel venue sandwiched between Rodborough & Minchinhampton Commons in the Cotswolds. This tournament with its lovely local walks is, without doubt, the most picturesque setting to play Backgammon in the UK. It is no wonder so many players have this returning annual event down as one of their favourite ever Backgammon weekends. .
