Welcome to Preston Contract Bridge Club
Hester Cup

The Hester Cup

Thursday 5th October 2017

This is a prestigious Preston Bridge Club event open to members of all abilities. Alongside the overall winner of the trophy there will be a handicap prize giving all entrants the chance to be a winner. All you need to do is create a team of four players and enter before Tuesday 3rd October.

It gives players unused to team playing and scoring the opportunity to learn another way of playing our favourite card game. For anyone who wants to play in the club teams it is a great opportunity to learn.

Like our popular Swiss Pairs competition it involves prior planning by the director and scorer so you must enter in advance.

If you wish to enter as a pair but haven’t got another pair please let Gill know and she may be able to find you another pair

Please note this will be a pivot event if the number of teams permits it isn't possible with all numbers of teams.

Entries please to Gill Armstrong.

By email to gillarmstrong72@gmail.com

Texts to 07920859525

Gill will reply to all emails and texts.
