A teams-of-four knock-out competition played by British Universities and Higher Education Institutions for which Green Points are awarded. The English Bridge Union administers this tournament on behalf of the world famous Portland Club in London.
All players must be registered as full time students with the University or College they are to represent. Each institution may enter one or two teams. Collegiate institutions may enter at University or College level.
Teams from the same institution will not be drawn against each other in the first round of the competition, nor before the quarter-finals unless the only alternative would cause unnecessary travelling for one or more teams. In order to reduce travelling, there is the option to play matches online if both teams agree.
The semi finals, final & 3rd/4th play-off will be played on consecutive days at the Portland Club, 13th - 14th April 2019. Entry implies that the team is available to play on these dates.
Universities on our mailing list will be contacted at the start of term, though any university team can submit an entry by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling 01296 317203.
The closing date for entries for 2018/19 is the end of October 2018.
