RELAXED DUPLICATE events have been organised over the past few years and are aimed at players who are relatively new to bridge and the events are intended to be a gentle introduction to duplicate sessions and competition. HBA organises these at various locations around the county, usually when a club identifies that they have a local demand. The next one of these events is organised for Hatfield Heath Bridge Club on Sunday 1st September, starting at 14.30.
CADETS. These events have seen reducing entries in recent years as less members became eligible under the old criteria and some of those who were eligible have preferred to play in the Relaxed Duplicate events instead. As a result both the Cadet Pairs and Cadet Teams events have been cancelled and will be replaced by two new events - the Ranked Masters Pairs and the Ranked Masters Teams - in the calendar. The qualification criteria for these new events will be a rank of 5 Star Master or below as at 1st September preceding the event. Currently approximately one third of HBA members have ranks above 5 Star Master and would not be eligible. We hope that with two thirds of members being eligible this will increase the entries for these new competitions.
CONGRATULATIONS: to the winning team:
