National Handicap Pairs Championship 2022 - 4th September

We are delighted to bring you the National Handicap Pairs Championship 2022 on Sunday, 4th September. This is a brand-new event which will be played by multiple clubs across the country.

It doesn't matter whether you are an experienced player, an improver or new to bridge, handicaps will level the playing field. You have exactly the same opportunity as other players. All you have to do is beat the average of your and your partner's combined NGS grade.

Play will start in the clubhouse at 13:30 and we play between 28-30 boards depending on table numbers. The cost of the competition is £10 for members and visitors. There will be a short break, half-way through the session, for coffee and a slice of delicious homemade cake.

The bar will be open so, food/snacks and drinks can be also be ordered before and throughout the session.

Please click here to book in advance.
