LCBA Competitions

LCBA has now produced its calendar of events for the 2021/22 season and a copy can be viewed here. Although LCBA is still hoping to restart face to face bridge early in 2022, January competitions will remain on-line and the current status of competitions is as follows:

  • Midlands No Fear 9-High Swiss Teams Competition.  This will be held on RealBridge on Saturday 29 January 2022. Entries will be limited to those pairs with a combined NGS of 9 or less, so ensuring that you will only meet teams of roughly your own ability.  LCBA will pay your entry fee as for previous competitions.  Full details, including how to enter, are in the flyer here.
  • Josephs Bowl. Round 1 will be a F2F multiple teams competition at County Bridge Club (CBC) on 2nd March with the top four teams progressing to a home-play knockout phase. The winners will be invited to represent Leicestershire in the Pachabo in June.  The remaining teams, plus any direct entries from non-expert teams (subject to there being at least four) will play a home-play knockout for the Butterworth-Langley Trophy.
  • Stanley Trophy. Heat 4 was scheduled to be F2F at CBC at the end of January. This will now be on BBO.  Heat 5 is scheduled to be F2F at CBC at the end of February. If CBC doesn't reopen at the end of January then this heat will be on BBO.
  • Wilde Cup (non-expert teams). This was scheduled to be F2F at CBC on Feb 9th. This has been postponed to Mar 9th. This will be reviewed if CBC does not reopen at the end of January. Options are to postpone it again or run it on RealBridge.
  • Pairs League. This was scheduled to be F2F at CBC with Heat 1 on Feb 10th. This has been postponed until Mar 10th, and will be revciewed if CBC does not reopen at the end of January. Options are to postpone it again or abandon it for this year.
