Unless stated below, a member will qualify for a competition provided he/she has played at least once in the past 12 months.
Participation in Club Competition sessions is open to non-members but they will not be eligible to win prizes and non-members will negate eligibility of the member(s) they are partnering.This statement assumes that there is space available for non-members.

Rules of Competitions played at Bredon Bridge Club.
The Tulloch Trophy H ....This celebrates the good times that Adam gave us during his time as a member of Bredon Bridge Club.This is a Handicap Competition played on an evening in November.
Bredon Pairs Cup H .... This normally played in March and the result is calculated on the current handicap of all players.
Anniversary Cup G .... This event is played towards the end of August to celebrate the formation of Bredon Bridge Club in 1998
Teams of Four .... This will be played in May or as soon thereafter as we have a suitable number of tables. A listing of player/pair averages will be generated by the Scorer a week before the calendar date. The top players will be allocated a table and their partners will be allocated on a bottom to top basis from the remaining pairs present.
Bredon Individual Cup G .... This event will be scheduled to be played in late September/early October.
Scorers Cup G .... This competition runs throughout the calendar year and all pairs events held during the year will be included in the calculation. There is a minimum number of 15 qualifying rounds for a partnership to be eligible for this competition.
Scorers Cup H .... As for the gross competition, there is a minimum of 15 qualifying rounds for a partnership to be eligible. The handicaps to apply will be calculated and added/deducted at the end of each calendar month. This ensures that the handicap truly reflects the pairs playing performance at any given time in the calendar year.
The qualifying handicap period for all handicap competitions is one year immediately previous to the event.
In the event that both Scorers Cups are won by the same Pair then the Handicap Cup will be presented to the runner up in that competition.
The letters G and H after the title of the competition denote either a Gross or Handicap Competition
Slammer of the Year ...This is an Individual Competition running throughout the year.
These rules are dated 14 July 2017 and were approved by the club at the AGM dated Friday 11th August 2017. The club also approved the motion that Competition Rules be incorporated in the Constitution, therefore they may only be amended subject to approval at an AGM or EGM.
