Thank you for your recent feedback.  The results of the questions along with your comments and our responses may be found here.  We shall be considering all feedback over the coming weeks and will advise of any format changes for the next series here.

Entry details for the September 2022 series starting Tuesday 20 September 2022 are available here, and full details of the format will be published here in due course.  Confirmed entries are listed here.

Some reminders:

  • The rules regarding sitouts/pair offs and substitutes when a player, or pair, is unable to make one of the sessions has changed are that you are now required to either play, substitute one or both players, or pair off.  A pair off is when a pair joins up with another pair in the same divisions to sitout the same session.  If you are seeking a pair off you may find another pair listed here.  If you would like your names added to the pair off list, please email here with your names and the date you require the pair off.
  • RealBridge - Video and Voice capability is available as standard in RealBridge, which makes the experience as close to face-to-face as possible. There will be those who cannot, or prefer not to, use Voice and/or Video, and that is fine. It is possible also to switch off - without deactivating your own camera - the Video of partner and the opponents if you prefer less distractions on screen. The Chat facility is the formal means of communication unless all four players are using voice.
  • Links to each session, past sessions, and results, are available on this website (see left hand menus WPLOnline) and will also be posted on the main page on the day.

If you have any questions, please email us here.

Thank you.
