Championship Pairs/Corwen Trophy

County Championship Pairs

Congratulations to the winners of the event Nigel & Pauline Durie.

The event was closely fought with various pairs leading during the competition and the final result was in doubt until the very last board.

Swiss Teams:

Our recent Swiss teams online was very successful with 32 teams.

Congratulations to the winning team:   Jeffrey & Ann Wilkins, Michael Tomlinson & Linda Smith

Team Competitions:

The proposed match against Yorkshire has been postponed for the time being due to difficulties in raising sufficient numbers.

We are now looking for a team of 8 for the club players section of the Northern Bridge League.

If, as a pair, you are round about a 10 or Jack on the NGS scale and should be available for some, if not all, of 4 Saturdays to play online (10/7, 21/8, 18/9, 9/10) then we would like to hear from you.  The more pairs the better since we can enter different teams on each occasion

The contact for this is Nigel Durie:  - just email with the pair names.

As usual at this time of year we are looking for Pairs interested in representing the county in the Annual Scotland Match.  For this event the A team of 8 usually comprises the winning team from the Kempson teams competition which has not been running this year, while the B team of 8 is usually made up from other pairs who have been doing well in teams events.  Obviously our selectors would like to know of interested pairs before making up the teams.  The match is usually on the first Sunday in July.

Please email our Chair of Selectors, Sue Davies with the names of your pair if you are interested in playing:
