We play once per month, on the evening of the 4th Friday or on the afternoon of the 4th Sunday: the Leuven Monthly. You are cordially invited to come and join us for a game, match, or tournament. Participation is free for members and €2 for non-members. The monthly tournaments in a single calendar year together comprise that year’s Club Championship.

In addition, we host the yearly Leuven Backgammon Open tournament. The 2016 edition was the 8th one and took place in November. Winner was Rudy Bertels.
