Monday Night Pairs Events
Spring & Summer Pairs 2018

Summer Pairs and Bank Holiday Pairs (Easter plus May twice and August):

10 evenings - just turn up!  It is an indivual competition, but you are encouraged to play with different partners.

Your best 5 scores with different partners across the 10 sessions will count;  the Bank Holiday games run by CBC are included in this series.

Winter Pairs 2018

This is a 5-seesion pairs event, running on the second Monday of each month from September 2018 until January 2019 (inclusive).

We will have two winning pairs - emerging from running this event off scratch and off handicap, with the handicap differences being half the NGS differences between the pairs. 

The scoring method for the series will be : average of your best 4 percentage scores. You can turn up as often as you like, but the more times you turn up the better for your score for the series.

Single Session Mondays 2018-19
  • Ladies & Mens Pairs : September 24th 2018 :  Single session events with the obvious restrictions.  No prior notice needed - just turn up.
  • Mixed Pairs : November 26th 2018 :  Single session event with the obvious restrictions. No prior notice needed - just turn up.
  • County Pairs Qualifying : January 28th 2019 : Single session event. No prior notice needed - just turn up.  You are allowed to play in this and other heats of County Pairs - as many as you like, and even with different partners. The top half of the field (rounded up, and including ties, but with no substitutes if pairs drop out) will qualify for the final. 
  • IndividualFebruary 25th 2019 : Single session and it's nice to know who is coming but you can just turn up on the day.  We aim to have stand-bys to make up full tables.
Spring Swiss Pairs 2019

This is a 4-session event, taking place on the second Monday of February, March and April 2019, plus on the fourth Monday of March.

This is a Swiss Pairs event, with assignments based on the running score.  Rematches will be avoided except that for the penultimate and the final match, playing against a pair you played in a previous session will be allowed.

(Bank Holiday and) Summer Pairs 2019

There are 7 Mondays designated as Summer Pairs during May, June, July and August 2019.  Together with the four Bank Holiday Mondays Pairs (the first of which is Easter Monday, which are run by CBC) the set of 11 games are a series of matchpoint competitions in which everyone competes as an individual.  Your average percentage over your best 6 sessions is used to give you a series score. Only your best score with any particular partner counts.

The session on the fourth Monday in July will be a heat of the EBU Similtaneous Pairs (plus side is enhanced master points and hand commentaries, minus side is that we have to charge extra).
