Please join us in welcoming new Secretary Breck McCormack to the AusBGF committee. Breck was born in the United States and first learned backgammon from his grandfather. He lived in London for 3 years and spent 15 years in Hong Kong where he was the Managing Director of the sports marketing firm IMG. He now lives in Sydney (plays with SydBG) and is very happy to call Australia home. Welcome aboard, Breck!

Great video for intermediates to experts that really drives it home… BE AGGRESSIVE!
The April Sydney Backgammoners Online Tournament was won by Hammon Mans over Saeed Nourmohammadi. Bill Marczak came third. Entry to the June tournament is now open.
AusBGF is excited to announce that we have joined the World Backgammon Federation (WBGF). Not only are we supporting this dynamic group, they will be supporting us in growing backgammon within Australia, particularly in regard to bringing young people into the game. Exciting times ahead! Check out the WBGF announcement on their Facebook page.
The Sydney team prevailed over Bucharest 15-13. The internet, with a little help from Covid, has added an international dimension to such challenges. Congratulations Sydney Backgammoners!
