The 2018 Birmingham Open will take place on Saturday 12th May 2018. Mike Wood, who very successfully ran the tournament for the past few years, has decided to step down.
So far we have opened the tournament registration to members of the MBGL, the Worcester League and anyone who has previously participated. The maximum number we will cater for is fixed at thirty two, as in all years except the last one.
The confirmed entrants as at Friday 16th March are as follows:-
Dave Pritchard Rich Carter Shaun Goode Rob Perry Martin Barkwill Anna Price Michelle Ford Mark Smyth Julian Minwalla Sean Jones Matthew Fisher Kev Jones Tony Papadopoullos Andreou Kyriakos Michael Christou Richard Munslow Jim Shoesmith Garry Jones David Penn Katharine McMaster Galloway, Graeme Luke Baldacchino Fak Laight Jamie Macpherson Paul Plumptre Ahmed Pahoor
The Birmingham Open is an annual tournament hosted by Birmingham Backgammon Club and organised and administered by Mike Wood.
The initial tournament was held in May 2012 and attracted players from around the UK. Since then it has continued to grow in popularity, not least because of the friendly atmosphere, and fantastic buffet provided by Mike.
