Premier Three 2020

Thirteen contestants signed up for the 2020 Bristol Premier League Division Three season, four of whom remain in the division from last year, while eight are debut Premier League entrants, and one is returning to the league.
This means that players are required to play each other twice in 11-point matches -- a total of twenty-four 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.
