There has been a Scotland team to play in a UK 4 nations backgammon tournament since 2020.

Qualification is based on family, birth or residence in Scotland. In advance of any tournament we have held qualification matches online and have put up a squad of six or seven players. Having a decent PR (performance rating) is also a requirement.

We are looking for new opportunities to play online with other countries and large clubs internationally (also probably online).

If you are interested in playing Backgammon at the International level we will be publishing information about any upcoming selections or playing opportunities on this site in due course.

“Your PR ratings on the online sites helps decide who will play for team competitions. The lower your PR Score the more likely you are to get chosen to play. It may at first sound daunting but I can guarantee once you have played in one competition you will want to play again. It is great fun and you learn so much.”
