National Pairs Heat
National Pairs Championship

 

From 2016, a regional Final (not exclusive to Essex Players) will be held at Barleylands as below.

This is a two session Pairs event held at various venues simultaneously. The event will be match pointed over the entire field via the internet. The starting times at all venues will be 13.00pm and 2 sessions of 24 boards will be played with a break between sessions. The second session will start at approximately 5.30pm. This is the first time that the EBU have run this event in Essex and we would ask interested tournament players to support Bernie Hunt in this new venture. Previously, after the local heat, players had to travel to Peterborough or Leatherhead to compete in the regional heat.

Click the header above for the EBU website page or see your EBU diary for full details.

 

Date: Sunday 18th March 2018; Venue: Barleylands;  Start time: 13:00 (- 20:30)

NOTE that as this is now an EBU competition, entry is via the EBU (members area / book events), not via the ECBA. 

Trophies will still be awarded to the Essex pair progressing furthest through the competition.
