HBA heats coming up at Royston
HBA heats coming up at Royston

There are two HBA heats coming up at Royston in the next few weeks:

1. The Cadet Pairs heat is on Thursday, 28th September
2. The Humble Cup heat (teams) is the following Thursday, 5th October

This is indicated on the calendar on the club website. More details of both these competitions can be found on the HBA website, but a brief summary follows (more details on request):

1. The Cadet Pairs heat is just like any other match-point pairs event. In addition, the top 50% of eligible pairs qualify for the Cadet Pairs final at Welwyn on Friday 16th February. To be eligible, both players must have earnt less than 5,000 Master Points. The club will pay the entry fee for any qualifying pair(s) wishing to take part in the final.

2. The Humble Cup is Hertfordshire's premier teams event. Again, the top 50% of teams from the heat qualify for the next stage of the competition held at Welwyn on Sunday 7th January.

As the Humble Cup heat at Royston is a teams event, pairs wanting to participate should arrange to make up a team of four with another pair beforehand. Only complete teams who turn up on the night will be sure to get a game, so use the usual mechanisms (Find a Partner etc) if you want to play on the 5th October and are looking for teammates. Let John Crosher know your team once you've agreed it (as per his recent email to club members).

Of course, participation in subsequent rounds in both these competitions is entirely voluntary, so don't be put off playing in the Royston heat, whatever your standard. The important thing is to have an enjoyable game on the night with as many pairs / teams taking part as possible.
