Club Championship 2020


The Club Championship 2020 connects the ten monthly tournaments in 2020.

There are three seasons: Winter (January to March), Spring (April to June) and Autumn (September to November). The three seasons’ winners plus a fourth player will fight things out in December.

The winner of the event will gain immortality as the 2020 Backgammon Club Leuven champion, successor of 2019’s champion Johan Segers. Although we call it “Club Championship”, you don’t need to be a member to participate or even to win the title!

Dates and venue

Please check the Leuven Monthly page for exact dates.


Each monthly tournament comprises three matches. On Sunday afternoon, we play three 7-point matches, whereas on Friday evening, we play two 7-point matches and one 5-point match. Just playing already earns you points, and winning even more so.

We follow the backgammon and tournament rules of the European Backgammon Federation as adopted by In particular, we play with the doubling cube and the clock.
