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. A decision on the dates of the semi-finals and whether will be held online or face-to-face will be taken later in the year.

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.

JUNIOR BRIDGE
JUNIOR BRIDGE

Youth bridge remains online with events still being co-ordinated on a regional scale. The most popular event is still the Friday Evening session hosted by Young Chelsea (William Chenal).

The first F2F event will be the 2021 South Eastern Junior Bridge Camp on 23rd - 24th October this year. This will be run by Sussex CCBA, Surrey CBA, and Kent CBA in a similar format to the successful event in 2019, at the Bowles Rocks Activity Centre. It is intended for juniors from age 8 to 21, and for all ability groups from beginners and those who are 'a bit rusty' after lockdown to those who are more confident.
