With apologies to the pairs who have already entered... we have had to cancel the event this year, due to the limited number of confirmed entries so far (30th Sept). Those of you who have already paid will be contacted about refunds very shortly.
We hope to run the event - face to face - next year, and we look forward to seeing you all at the club before too long.
The annual Club Championship Pairs event held in memory of Dorothy Shanahan (1915-2007) member of the English Ladies Team and club founder, will take place on BBO at 2pm on Saturday October 17, 2020. As it is an online event this year we will be able to accommodate more players, but numbers will still be limited so please get your entry in as soon as possible. You can register online now.

Event Format: Depending on entries we expect to play between 36 and 44 boards. Hand records will be available with a brief commentary on each hand by our Tournament Director. The event will start at 2.00 pm and finish by 6.30 pm, with a short break at the half-way point.
Announcement of winners and presentation of trophy: Winners will be announced at a Zoom meeting for all competitors approximately 30 minutes after the end of play, allowing time for verification of results. There will be a ‘virtual’ presentation of the trophy followed by discussion of the hands led by the Tournament Director. Full results will be posted on the Club’s Bridgewebs page.
The entry fee will be £6 per player for early registrations received and paid for by 30th September and £7 after that. Registrations will close at midday on Friday 16th. October to allow time to finalise the movement and set up the game.
Please pay entry fees by Direct Transfer to the club bank account (London Duplicate Bridge Club, Sort code: 090150, Account number: 05918529) quoting your BBO ID as reference so that we can allocate payment against your registration. Registration will not be confirmed until payment has been received.
Prizes: The winning pair will hold the Dorothy Shanahan silver trophy for 12 months with their names engraved. BBO rules preclude cash prizes and only ‘modest’ prizes of BBO dollars are allowed. Subject to BBO confirmation, prizes will be awarded as follows: $20 each for the winning pair, $10 each for the 2nd pair, and $7 each for the 3rd pair. A 4th prize of $5 each may be awarded subject to the number of entries.
