National Pairs

The EBU National Pairs

- our national pairs championship!

Now in three stages

In 2023 any pair that gets over 55% in a club game between 5th Feb and 18th Feb will be entitled to play in the Regional Finals on 26th March. All club games submitted under Code 10 or Code 12 will count and the clubs do not need to do anything special - if the game is played and submitted, players who get over 55% will automatically qualify.

There will be five regional finals run by counties, on 26th March with two online platforms (BBO and RealBridge) for each. Entry fees for the regional finals will be £10 per player. At least one player from each pair must have allegiance to the county in which they play the regional final.

The results within the regions will be used to award the five regional trophies. All five regions will also be combined and scored nationally to determine the top 50 pairs, who will be entitled to play the National Pairs Final on RealBridge on 15th - 16th April 2023.

The event is also part of the Championship Series, in which points can be earned towards the Player of the Year Championship.

To enter

Entry to the regional finals are made direct to the county in question.

Entry to the National Final is determined by qualification from the regional finals.
