Lambourne Jersey Festival

2nd – 7th May 2023, Westhill Country Hotel, Jersey

This is a wonderful and very popular congress held annually on the delightful island of Jersey. Details about the various aspects of the congress can be found by clicking the links below. We feel sure that you would enjoy this excellent, relaxed yet challenging congress. To be eligible for a Seniors event, players must have their 63rd birthday or beyond during the calendar year (January-December) of the event. For example, a player can play in a Seniors event at the age of 62 provided his/her 63rd birthday falls later that year. See here for further details.
