Newcastle Backgammon Club celebrates it's 35th year of organization and competition in 2018.

Playing nights are low cost and based on competition for the Annual Club Championship rather than money play.

The Club meets at the Charlestown Bowling Club, Lincoln St, Charlestown every fortnight. Registration from 18.45, play normally starts at 19.15. NBC Membership is $10 per year and Competition nights are $5 per player.

A Championship year consists of 20 rounds of Round Robin competition, punctuated after 10 rounds by the Captain's Trophy knockout tournament (top 16 players after round 10). After round 20 there is the President's Trophy (top 16 players between rounds 11 and 20) and the Top 8 Trophy which is for the best 8 ranked players of the full 20 rounds. 

The Club's Presentation night concludes the year's activities and we have a short break over Christmas/New Year.
