Support our Junior Squad by playing in the next Sim Pairs

The next EBU Simultaneous Pairs takes place Monday 6th to Thursday 9th February.

This year these Sims Pairs games will also count as qualifiers for the National Pairs Regional Finals. For any players who achieve a score of over 55% in any club games between 5th and 18th February, we will invite them to play in the National Pairs Regional Finals taking place online on 26th March.

All clubs are welcome to join in the "Junior Squad Sim Pairs" which aims to celebrate and promote junior bridge in England. The event remains in the familiar fun format, suitable for everyone to play, not just juniors! Funds raised from the event go directly into the junior squad budgets. This year three junior teams will represent England at the World Youth Bridge Championships in the Netherlands this August.

I hope you will support this event and look forward to you playing.

This Sim Pairs is slightly different to others Sims events, the first set of deals can be played on Monday or Tuesday. The second set can be played on Wednesday or Thursday. This means a larger field in each competition, making it more interesting and enjoyable for those who take part.
