OBC Novice Pairs Competition 2018

The club's Novice Pairs competition for the Morrie Marsh Trophy will take place on Monday 21 May, at 7.15pm. 

This competition is restricted to 'Novice Pairs' who are full members of Oxford Bridge Club. Pairs who are not eligible to win the competition are welcome to play in the session but they cannot win the Trophy.

For the purposes of this competition a ‘Novice Pair’ is a partnership in which both players

  • Either have fewer than 200 Masterpoints (below Club Master) and have not previously won this or any other club trophy, excluding the Roger Hughes Trophy.
  • Or are currently following a Bridge for All Year 1 or Year 2 course run by Oxford Bridge School.

Players with previous experience of playing duplicate bridge who have returned to the game after a long gap, and those holding a significant number of masterpoints from a non-EBU organisation, are not considered Novices for this event. 

The Novice pair with the highest score will win the Trophy. The Trustees reserve the right to review the status of all competing players. To that end, the winners will not be announced on the night.
