The WBU have decided to re-instate the Graded Masters Pairs.
The event will be held on Sunday January 22nd: each Welsh area will host its own sub- event, but with duplimated boards scored across all areas. The Western Area will use its normal venue - Tumble Hall - but note the start time of 11.30am. In addition there will be one centralised event for players who have +300 green points (to be played in Cardiff Bridge Club). All sections will be eligible for green points and generous cash prizes. Give it a try!
