Northern Midweek Congress

Venue TBC, 18th – 20th August 2020

A fully Green-pointed Tuesday to Thursday midweek congress featuring a 3-session ‘all play through’ Championship Pairs event and a one-day Swiss Teams event.

Entry fees and prizes have traditionally been specially reduced for this particular congress. This was extended from 2015 so that there is no prize money but entry fees are reduced correspondingly.

Both events will be ‘stratified’ into three categories with extra Master Points available for those in the "B" or "C" categories. For the pairs event, the categories are below Regional Master, below Life Master and Open.

The schedule includes time to enjoy the hotel's health club and spa facilities, or enjoy attractions in the area.
