Of all the various events and off beat products one may be able to find on the Avenue, one of the most surprising may be Sweet Lime’s monthly backgammon tournament.


The tournament, hosted by the Trinidad Backgammon Association, was a quiet affair this April as the puckered brows of players deep in concentration were not distracted by the karaoke singing happening at the same time. For three hours, a handful of players pitted their pawns against each other and Colin Marshall, a supervisor at MaPau Members Club, triumphed over his opponent, Billy Hannon.


Marshall then proceeded to battle against Gerard Tang Yuk, a successful veteran in these monthly tournaments. After 11 pm, Marshall was finally declared the winner of the event, with a sweet chorus of eager karaoke-ers in the background.
