The Ohio State Backgammon Club was established in 1979. With more players learning the game through the Internet. We have continued to add new players to our roster each year. Please come join us at our monthly tournaments. Or contact us if you would like free lessons.Free coaching sessions for Novice players will be offered during the registration period  at the start of the day, and everyone is welcome to attend at any time of the day to observe, learn the basics and play social games until they feel ready to step up to tournament play. All ages are welcome!

As a member of the United States Backgammon Federation. A not-for-profit organization devoted to advancing the awareness, participation, education and enjoyment of the skill based game of backgammon. I will work to promote growth and opportunities for players of all levels. I plan on helping to bring the federation to the attention of all players of this great game. I have membership information available. Or you can go to theUSBGF web page for more info.
