Premier One 2019

There are thirteen contestants for Bristol Premier League Division One for the 2019 season, eight of whom retained their places through their 2018 efforts, while four won automatic promotion from Premier Two, and one other has taken advantage of a vacancy.
Players play each other twice in 11-point matches, in a season spanning the eleven months from January to November.
Players arrange their own fixtures, at mutually acceptable venues and times, with Bristol Backgammon's Monday and Thursday sessions being prime opportunities.
