Premier Two Red 2020

There are twenty-four contestants for the 2020 Bristol Premier League Division Two season, sixteen of whom remain in the division from last season, while three have been relegated from Premier One, three have gained automatic promotion from Premier Three, and two others from last season's Premier Three have taken up vacancies
Those 24 players have been arranged into two parallel divisions of twelve, Premier Two Blue and Premier Two Red, ordered as per their finishing positions last year.
In each division players play each other twice in 11-point matches giving a total of twenty-two 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.
