4. Who runs the league? How is it organized?
The U.S. Backgammon League is currently run by Eric Barr and Kathleen Davis. Soon a board of directors will be formed.
Clubs around the country affiliate with the USBL in order to have their tournaments officially recognized and rated by the USBL. Affiliation is free and simply requires signing a form ensuring that entry fees (if any) will not be used for prize money and that the official tournament rules will be followed.
