Premier Three 2019

Eleven contestants signed up for the 2019 Bristol Premier League Division Three season, two of whom had failed to retain their Premier Two places from last season, while two others remain in the division from last year, three others were returning to the league, and four are entirely new to Premier League backgammon.
This means that players are required to play each other twice in 11-point matches -- 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.
