Penang Club Host USRC

On 6th April 2024 we were delighted to see our old friends from United Services Recreation Club return to Penang for a friendly interclub match. Each club provided 3 competing teams together with a hybrid team made up from one Penang pair and one Hong Kong pair.

Although the Hong Kong team led by Mimi Wong were the highest scoring team, when the three teams on each side had their results aggregated Penang came out on top.

Penang Club Visits Hong Kong
Penang Club Visits Hong Kong

With Covid-19 firmly behind us, the Penang Club restarted their friendship with the United Services Recreation Club in Hong Kong. The USRC players visited Penang earlier this year. Then in November we were fortunate to create new ties with the Hong Kong Club. So for our 2023 visit to Hong Kong we were fortunate enough to play a head to head team game against the Hong Kong Club. Which Penang Club won. On day two we joined USRC for their annual open pairs competition. There was excitement all round when our hosts announced that one of the Chinese gold medalists from the recent bridge Olympiad was playing. Then on the third day we had our team game against USRC. Each club fielded three teams. USRC gained top spot with the teams from Penang coming 2nd, 3rd and 4th with USRC 5th and 6th.
We were very well looked after by our hosts and everyone had a great time.
