The Handicap Championship Pairs is open to all clubs.
The Handicap Championship Pairs is a relatively new event. It takes place as sessions organised by host bridge clubs. It will be run similar to a Sim Pairs, but with handicaps. Clubs are responsible for most aspects of the session, including taking entries, running the game and submitting the scores.
The entry fee is determined by each host club - a part of this is remitted to the EBU and the rest is retained by the club, so by taking part you are supporting your local club as well as playing in a national competition.
Details of the clubs which are hosting sessions will be available below.
This year the competition will be played online, hosted by Virtual Clubs. The competition will be played as a single extended session, of 26-30 boards, scored by match-points at all participating virtual clubs.
The time of the event will be 2pm. Please see below for information.
Handicaps will be based on the average NGS of the two players in each pair. Players will need to have their NGS visible.
Please enter directly with the host club. The contact details and/or the process for making an entry for each venue will be listed below.
Blue Points will be awarded to the top 1/3 of the overall field at National rate and prizes will be awarded based on the overall ranking list.
NGS grading for this event will be based on the underlying local results.
Level 4 agreements are permitted in this event.
