Premier Three 2018

Eight contestants signed up for the 2018 Bristol Premier League Division Three season, one of whom failed to retain his Premier Two place from last season, while another was returning to the league, and six are entirely new to Premier League backgammon.
One of the eight resigned before playing a match, so the seven remaining players are to play each other three times 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.
