Guernsey Bridge Congress

19th – 25th September 2022, The Peninsula Hotel, Guernsey

The Peninsula Hotel located on the far North area of the island, sits beautifully on a picturesque headland with a wonderful view over Grand Havre Bay from the front & a lovely sheltered typical Guernsey Beach from the rear. The hotel is ideally suited for tourists & locals of any age wanting a relaxing, beach side location with a great range of food & beverage options available all year round. With 99 ensuite rooms including some with sea views, perfect for short & long stays. Located only 15 minutes for Guernsey’s Airport, and 10 minutes from St Peter Port being the heart of Guernsey. Situated directly outside the hotel is one of the main bus stops making travel throughout the island stress free and very reasonable at only £1 per journey

To be eligible for a Seniors prize, both players in a pair must have their 63rd birthday or beyond during the calendar year (January-December) of the event. For example, a player can win a Seniors prize at the age of 62 provided their 63rd birthday falls later that year.
