FARNHAM BRIDGE CLUB SYVIA ROSE

CLICK HERE for a list of teams, proposed draw and schedule of matches for the 2021/2022 Sylvis Rose Competition.  
Teams have been seeded, so that each division is as balanced as practical, plus I have taken into account teams preferences for match days.

The entry fee for each team is a modest £48 and this covers all Realbridge costs and EBU P2P costs.  Team captains are requested to pay this amount to Farnham bridge club by bank transfer, in advance of their first match.   Payment should be to  FARNHAM BRIDGE CLUB,  Sort Code 09-01-51, Account 65409304, reference SR plus captain surname.   (If you play in Farnham Realbridge duplicate sessions you are likely to already have this set up in your payments).

In the next week or two I will send out instructions for the set-up and play of teams matches on Realbridge.  It is very simple!
