“9 HIGH” PAIRS
All players with an NGS rating of 9 or below are welcome, especially those who have never previously experienced the buzz of a congress. The “9 High” is designed to be a relatively relaxed and friendly event. There will be a number of prizes, not just for the winners. Please contact Nicola Renshaw Tel: 07748 963301 if you would like help finding a partner.
Players from Gloucestershire and Herefordshire will also have the opportunity to represent their home clubs for the splendid "Judy Ballinger Cup", this cup was kindly sponsored by David Ballinger in memory of his late wife. Players from these two counties are invited to specify their home club on the entry form. The winning club will be decided by the average score of their top three performing pairs – so any club can win, no matter how small.
