Young Bridge Challenge

The National Schools Championships is a half-day teams events for school-age bridge players held at Loughborough Grammar School (LE11 2DU) each spring.

The event starts with a Swiss teams event where each team plays a few boards against each of about four other teams. In each round teams are assigned to play opponents with approximately the same score.

After the tea break, the top single-school teams play off for the Schools Cup (a single-school team trophy) and the others play for the Harry Scully Trophy.

There is also an event aimed at the less experienced players who will play fewer boards at a rather slower pace and may also receive some coaching.

Further details about the National Schools Championship  are here on the EBU website.

EBU Masterpoints

Blue Masterpoints are awarded for each match won and also to the top teams in each of the Schools Cup and Harry Scully trophy.
