Women of Backgammon

Founded, and directed by women, the USBGF Women of Backgammon ℠ provides support and resources to girls, women, and gender minorities seeking to get involved in the game. Backgammon is a strategic game that can be enjoyed by all — no matter your skill level.  The USBGF Women of Backgammon seeks to increase the number of active women players and support them on their learning journey.

Join us for a fun and friendly tournament on the first Tuesday of every month.  Then return on the third Tuesday for a focused learning session on a variety of topics.
