During the Coronavirus/COVID-19 outbreak, there will be no organised play at the Rats'. Instead, online tournaments will be trialled shortly (using GridGammon as platform).
St Albans Backgammon club is entirely free - there are no membership fees, no entry fees, no "rakes". But please remember to support our host landlord/lady by patronising the bar!
Our tournaments feature a "variable pool", so everyone plays in the same tournament, for whatever stake they are comfortable with.
Our chouettes are usually limited to a maximum of 5 players, so you are guaranteed plenty of play all evening.
