2022/23 Sussex Pairs Final

To check whether you have qualified to play in the Sussex Pairs Final, which is to be played on BBO on Sunday 19th March at 11am, please check the list of qualifiers.  The final will be an all-play-all movement with a short break for lunch.  17 x 2 board rounds are planned.

It is important that all qualifying pairs (but nobody else) should submit their registration via the Registration for Online Finals page and pay their table money (£10 per pair) by March 12th at the latest.  The Registration page also contains details of how to pay table money and important information about the running of the final.

If you have qualified but cannot now play in the final, please email organiser Gerry Stanford (or phone him on 01403 255952) as soon as possible, even if you have registered and paid for your entry.  This will enable Gerry to call up reserves and avoid the need for robots.  Competitors must be EBU members with primary affiliation to Sussex.  Substitutes are not allowed.

Leading pairs in the final will qualify for the EBU’s Corwen Trophy which is to be held on Realbridge on the 3rd / 4th June.  The County will pay your entry fee for this event.

Gladys Hakki Trophy 2022/23

Affiliated clubs and members of the county management committee have been invited to make nominations (via the attached form) by Tuesday February 28th for the Gladys Hakki Trophy.  The intent of the trophy is annually to recognise a member of the County who has given unstintingly of their time and service, and contributed exceptionally to the success of contract bridge in the County.  If you know of someone whom you believe meets these criteria, please contact one of your local club officers or a member of the county management committee to convey your views.
