Sponsors Hepworth Brewery have agreed to supply us with a case of their beer and presentation pack and Biba will offer a free lifetime membership to the winner once again, thank you both sure it will help the tournament be as successful as it was last year. Dal Negro have agreed to sponsor this event with 340 euro backgammon board so there will be a fantastic prize which will be awarded to the best placed person who has paid the £5 qualifying fee and agree to an email from Dal Negro about their backgammon products. In light of this I am going to adjust the prizes a little and open up another section for players graded under 1500 on 06/10/18 on http://results.ukbgf.com/ratings to win some extra money. There will be a 8 player 1 point knockout with £30 for the winner and £20 for the runner.
Details for the The 2nd Sussex Challenge Cup Tournament on the Saturday, 13th of October 2018.
After successfully arranging the 2017 tournament I am pleased to hold this popular 1 day tournament again this year on the above date, details will follow shortly when I have been able to check more information but I will be looking to arrange it for 32 players again.
The cost for the 2nd Sussex Challenge Cup 2018 will be £30 entry and £20 early registration (after the 6th of October 2018 registration will be £25)
32 X £30 should produce a total of £960 prize fund. If there are less than 32 players the prize fund will be reduced accordingly.
The registration is to cover a buffet lunch that will be provided during the day and free tea and coffee which will be available to all the players. There will also be prizes for the winners and runner ups in the Main, Consolation and Last Chance tournaments.
Main Event prize fund distribution based on the full 32 entrants. I will supply engraved glasses for winners and runner ups in the main elements and there will be Champagne, Prosecco, Wine and Beer for the various winners too as well as some spot prizes. For anyone wishing to win this backgammon board for just a £5 qualification fee it will be awarded to who finishes best. If neither finalist has paid the £5 but both Semi-finalists have they will have to have a play off to decide who wins it.

Best performance for a player Graded less than 1600 in the UKBGF ranking http://results.ukbgf.com/ratings at the time of the tournament and who progresses the furthest in the main event (shared if more than 1 in the same round, ie no tie break) prize of £30. Providing they don’t actually become the winner or runner up in the main or consolation element of this tournament, in which case it will go to the next best finisher who hasn’t won a major prize as this helps to share the winnings to as many players as possible.
The side pools open on all elements will be £5, £10 and £20 but the £5 will exclusive so if you enter this you can’t enter any other, the £10 and £20 will be open to all so you can enter either or both or none in the 3 main tournaments. There will be an optional £5 side pool in the under 1500 knockout tournament which will be paid to the highest finisher who has enter this pool.

Details for the The Sussex Challenge Cup Tournament on the Saturday, 14th of October 2017.
Please to say we got our full entry of 32 players as listed below so a huge thank you to the players who played and hope you will come again next year details about which I will publish here as and when I can arrange something.
My thanks to local Brewer Hepworth’s for agreeing to sponsor our event to the tune of a couple of cases of their fine Sussex ales and there will be some spot prizes for various achievements such as the player traveling the furthest to the venue, which was Edinburgh, and second furthest was Newcastle while the nearest was 7.8 miles so shame we didn’t get a Bognor player attending.
Other prizes included not winning a match, losing to zero and sporting gesture to Bill Pope nominated by first time tournament attending local Dan Sutton.
