21st – 23rd October 2022, RealBridge
The EBU Autumn Congress
- a weekend of bridge from the comfort of home!
RealBridge 21st - 23rd October 2022
This Autumn congress will be held online over three days.
TOURNAMENT DIRECTOR IN CHARGE: COLIN SIMCOX
This year the Autumn Congress will be held on RealBridge, meaning you do not have to travel to play in this national EBU competition.
The qualifier for the Two Star Pairs will take place on Friday in the form of Matchpointed Swiss Pairs. From this the top 20 pairs will qualify for the Two Stars Pairs and the next twenty for the Satellite pairs (the secondary final).
Anyone wishing to play only on the Friday may do so. Those who don’t qualify for the main finals, and those who choose not to play on the Friday and play only on Saturday, will play in a more traditional style of Swiss Pairs on the Saturday.
The Two Star Pairs is also the first event in this year’s Championship Series, in which points will be earned towards the Player of the Year Championship.
We also have our 2-session multiple teams event on the Sunday for the Eastbourne Bowl (Premier) and the Burlington Cup (Secondary). All non-qualifiers play in the Sussex Cup.
Please note: Prizes will be awarded for the top three placed pairs, with a prize pool based on about 10% of total entry fees less VAT.
