With 24 confirmed players for 24 seats, the 12th Leuven Open on Sunday, November 21, 2021, is going to be a wonderful event. Just a few practical things:
Because of the recent decisions by the Belgian government, the Corona Safe Ticket (+ ID card) will be required. Should this mean that, very unfortunately, you cannot participate, then please let us know as soon as possible, and maybe your seat can make somebody on the waiting list happy.
As the windows of the playing venue may have to be opened from time to time, a warm sweater may come in handy.
The dice will start rolling at 10:00, so please be there at 9:45 at latest, and preferably earlier. Breakfast, included in the fee, will be waiting for you from 9:00.
Venue: Brasserie De Abdijmolen, Abdij van Park 4, 3001 Leuven
With 24 participants who have registered and paid the registration fee, the maximum capacity of the 12th Leuven Open, on Sunday, November 21, 2021, has been reached. If you would still like to join, you can enter your name via the registration form, which will serve as a waiting list in case somebody cancels.
We’ve been thinking hard and long about this one: another venue, another tournament format, etc. But in the end we see no other option. Sometimes, it’s just better to pass than to play on and risk a gammon.
So, for the first time since 2009, there will be no Leuven Open Backgammon this year. We hope that the 12th edition can and will take place in 2021, with the familiar ingredients that give the tournament its unique flavour.
Thank you for your understanding. Looking forward to better times when we can roll the dice together again.
While our in-person events are on hold because of the Coronavirus pandemic, we’ve not forgotten about our future events: the 12th Leuven Open is scheduled for 8th of November, in our usual venue, Abdijmolen.
More information and registration will be available soon.
Due to the measures to limit the propagation of the COVID-19 virus, the following live backgammon activities are postponed or cancelled:
Leuven Monthly (Friday, April 24)
4 Cubes rounds 2 & 3 (Sunday, April 26)
Brussels Friendly 100 (Friday, May 1)
As soon as we have more information about the meeting possibilities, the BIC competition will be rescheduled. By now, our expectation is to postpone all matches by +/- 3 months (for ex. the D2 qualifying round-robin to be finished in June will be rescheduled till September). Online matches still valid for the rating list (see earlier post).
