Crockfords Cup

2021/22 Final & Plate Final: 24th - 25th September, Charlecote Pheasant Hotel, Warwick

The English open teams-of-four championship. This is England's premier teams championship. It consists of knock-out matches in the early stages, played privately, qualifying eight teams to contest an all-play-all final. The competition is part of the Championship Series, in which points can be earned towards the Player of the Year Championship. The Crockford's Plate competition is open to all unseeded teams who are defeated in their first match of the main event, be this in round 1, or in round 2 following a bye. The last 8 from the Crockfords Plate will play alongside the main final (same dates, venue and format).

Later rounds of this event will be face-to-face but teams are invited to indicate willingness to play online, which would be applied to the early stages to reduce travelling. They must be willing to play later stages face-to-face though. Prices for Crockfords entries are based on the previous face to face iteration.

It is recommended to either play on RealBridge or to play on BridgeBaseOnline with Skype Screens for online matches.

Important: If you are going to arrive late to a session, please call our TD in charge on 07780673522. Please note that text messages can't be forwarded to our TD.
