Wednesday evening autumn programme

From Wednesday 5th September the full autumn/winter calendar will commence. The 5th and the 19th September will see pairs evenings which will form part of the National Pairs Sponsorship Competition (NPSC). The 12th and 26th September will see the first and second rounds of the Championship Pairs competition.

On the 3rd October, the EBU Autumn Simultaneous Pairs is being held and the 10th October sees the first round of the Championship Teams competition. Full details of these competitions can be found under Competitions in the menu.

Members who have never played on a Wednesday evening might like to give it a try. You just might be pleasantly surprised and you would certainly be very welcome.  Don't be nervous. We are all good enough to play on a Wednesday evening.
