Premier Two Blue 2017

There are twenty-two contestants for the 2017 Bristol Premier League Division Two season, four of whom were relegated from Premier One, while sixteen retained their Premier Two status, and two new entrants were fast-tracked in.
The 22 players have been arranged into two parallel divisions of eleven, Premier Two Blue and Premier Two Red, ordered as per their finishing positions last year, with new entrants randomly drawn into the last places.
In each division players play each other twice in 11-point matches giving a total of twenty matches each, 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.
