Oxfordshire Bridge Association is changing the format for 2024 to generate more entries and interest. Any club pairs duplicate in the weeks commencing 19th November, 3rd December or 7th January entitle pairs with 50% or more to play in one of three County Pairs Semifinals. For players whose clubs do not have a regular pairs duplicate or for pairs unable to play in their own club heats (players should only play in their own club heats) there is a County Heat on Thursday 30th November (RealBridge) open to all. The semifinal dates are Thursday 1st February 7pm, Sunday 11th February 2pm, Monday 19th February 7pm (24-26 boards, MPs at National Scale) on Realbridge. In proportion to players in each semifinal there will be a 10 table final on Sunday 17th March 2pm (38 boards, Green points awarded).
