The Tournament

Scope’s Annual Backgammon and Bridge tournament is steeped in history and recognised around the world as ‘the charity tournament of the year’.

The event is held at The Royal Automobile Club (RAC), one of London’s finest private members' clubs and tickets include: a champagne reception, instant prize draw with items donated by leading luxury brands, brunch, live auction conducted by a celebrity auctioneer, well run tournaments, afternoon tea, trophies, prizes and bespoke Geoffrey Parker backgammon boards and bridge travel sets for tournament winners.

I had a fantastic time at this year’s event; it was well organized and you can’t ask for a better location.
