Larsky Cup (Kent Pairs Championship)

The Larsky Cup is Kent's Premier Pairs event and is our qualifier for the Corwen Cup. We start with heats in every club, from which pairs qualify for four County-run semi-finals leading to a 13-table final.

Normally we would have asked clubs for dates for their heats by now but obviously things are still not normal and many clubs will be unsure whether they will be playing face-to-face or online or a combination of the two at the time the heats are normally held.

KCBA has therefore decided that for this year only all events held by affiliated clubs in the weeks commencing 15th Nov, 6th Dec and 10th Jan will be heats for the Larsky and that all pairs scoring 50% or more in these heats will qualify to play in the semi-final of their choice, also online in February on BBO: Wed 9th evening, Tues 15th Feb afternoon, Sun 20th Feb afternoon, Thu 24th Feb evening Dates are.  The final will be held online on Saturday 19th March on BBO.

Clubs need to do nothing except make sure that all their results whether face-to-face or online are posted on their website and qualified pairs will be contacted for their choice of semi-final.

KCBA support and encourages Junior Bridge. £500 of our funds have been donated to the recent Junior Camp. The South Eastern Junior Bridge Camp was held successfully on 23rd/24th October with Kent, Surrey and Sussex sponsoring this. The aim is to increase numbers in 2022 and the SEJBC will form part of of a 5-event "Grand Prix" for Juniors, to try to increase numbers nationally and ensure that squad members participate as much as possible.

If any member wishes to contribute to junior funding, please contact Georgina Howe, our treasurer.
