The In-House League and Knock-out competitions are being held this year, after a year and a bit out of action due to the pandemic.
Some of you may be be reluctant to meet in-house at this stage of the pandemic but you will be able to play the matches on-line, on BBO. Many of you will have been playing on BBO and will be familiar with it, others may need to learn. It is not difficult. Help is available and some practice could be arranged.
If you and the opposing team would prefer to use a different platform for a match that would be ok, but you might find it better to stick to BBO to gain experience for your other matches.
There willl be the option to play at home or to play on-line throughout the season, so whether you are concerned about the pandemic, or not happy about travelling long distances, or driving in the dark evenings, you will still be able to play.
The format of the competitions will depend on the number of entries but will at least be as follows:
In the league all teams in a division will play each other, either once or twice in the season, depending on the number of teams in a division. There will be between 5 and 7 matches.
In the knock-out each team will be guaranteed 2 matches. If they do well they would expect up to 4 matches, depending on the number of teams.
PLEASE get some friends together and enter a team for one or both events. The more entries we get the more interesting and enjoyable the events will be and the more people will enjoy playing friendly competitive bridge.
To enter a team or to get more information, please contact Mike Ralph directly, or contact him via the website (Menu option ""Information" >> "Contact Us").
Entries cost £16 per team for the league, £12 per team for the knock-out.
Please get your entries to us by 25th September. If you need more time that's not a problem as long as you let Mike Ralph know.
