Please support this friendly monthly event, which was started last summer by Gilly Clench to encourage new partnerships etc. It is held alternately on RealBridge and BBO.

These competitions will initially be held online.
The draw will be done on a National basis, and the only non-regional travelling may be for the finals later in the year (undecided as to whether these will be online or FtoF).
A ‘double elimination’ system will operate, ensuring any team must lose two matches before being eliminated. There are generous Green Point awards, based on the result of 8-board stanzas, so you can lose the match, but still win Green Points. For event details and entry forms, click the appropriate cup or contact the event organiser Jean Hand
The closing date for entries is January. 25th 2022.
The weekend was off to a flying start for the Western area with Mike Reed & Barry Thorne from Carmarthen winning the Max Powell Trophy (Mens Pairs) and Pembroke pairs Julie & Peter Milewski the Miixed and John Bowen & Julia Gilbertson the Novices events. The Phillis Rowe Trophy (Ladies Pairs) went to Joyce White & Babs Matthews (England) while the best placed WW pair were Lee Collier & Margaret Lane (5th)
The East Wales team of Julian Pottage, Tony Ratcliff, Filip & Diane Kurbalija won Saturday's Swiss Teams event, while hot on their heels were WW pair Jennifer Wardell & Keith Davison with their Irish friends Kay Clement & Phyllis O'Reagan.
