Welcome to The North East Backgammon Association

We are a friendly group of backgammon enthusiasts based in the North East of England who meet every month for an evening of social play, a mini tournament or league matches.

Existing members comprise beginners, intermediate and experienced players, plus national tournament winners and you are more than welcome to join us.

We meet twice a month:

  • At the Gateshead Bowling Green Club (via Alexandra Road, with parking and next to the Gateshead Masonic Hal) on the first Monday of the month at 6.45pm; and
  • at the Old George Pub, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 1EZ on the third Tuesday of the month at 6.45pm.
