UKBGF Membership Number 1 Auctioned For 1,700! Numbers 2 - 21 Up For Grabs!

Dear Backgammon Friend,

We are delighted to be able to report that James Ramsey won the auction to be the first ever member of the United Kingdom Backgammon Federation at the Scope charity tournament. Bidding reached a fantastic 1,700. James will be UKBGF Member Number 1 and is granted lifetime membership.

Due to huge demand from the backgammon public we have decided to auction the first 21 membership numbers. We already have a bid of 1,000 for Membership Number 2 and a bid of 500 for Membership Number 007!

Bidding will be on a sealed bid basis. If you would like to bid for one or more numbers please send an email to sean@ukbgf.com with the number/s that you would like to bid for and the amount that you would like to bid. Players may only win one membership number so please state a preference if you are bidding for more than one number. If you bid over 1,000 (and win the bid) then your membership will be at Founder Member level and will be for life.

Bidding closes on 31st March at midnight. Bids received after this point will not be counted. Whoever has submitted the largest sealed bid at that point will win the number in question. If they have already won another number then the 2nd highest bid will win and so on.

Don't worry if you do not have a few hundred pounds to spare. You are just as important to the UKBGF. Obviously we want to maximise income so that we can promote backgammon as best that we can but it is just as important that we are inclusive and that we get as many members as possible. A 25 member is just as important as a 1,700 member.

Full details of the available membership packages are given here:


Membership will open to everyone on the 1st April (assuming HSBC pull their finger out and set our bank account up!) where membership numbers from 22 onwards will be allotted on a strictly first come, first served basis.

We are delighted that so many people have shown their support for the new UKBGF in this way. The committee are truly grateful for the overwhelmingly positive response that we have received.

Roll well and we hope to see you soon,

The UKBGF Board of Directors
