22nd – 24th October 2021, Delta by Marriott, Warwick
The qualifier for the Two Star Pairs will take place on Friday in the form of Matchpointed Pairs. From this the top 20 pairs will qualify for the Two Stars Pairs and the next twenty for the Satellite pairs. 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 as usual, with a prize pool based on about 17.5% of total entry fees less VAT.
