29th – 31st May 2021, RealBridge
A relaxed congress held over the three-day holiday. The Championship Pairs is a four-session event with a two-session qualifying round on the Saturday, leading to a pair of two-session 'all play-all' finals for the top forty pairs on Sunday. The non-qualifying players move in to the Swiss Pairs. Please note that the Swiss Pairs is now a one-day event on the Sunday. The Swiss Teams event is stratified and suits a whole range of players from Club Master to Grand Master. Stratification will be in 3-levels:
2019 Championships Pairs A Final - Nathalie Shashou & Nick Sandqvist Championships Pairs B Final - Robin Wright & Alan Wilson Swiss Pairs - Todor Tiholov & James Thrower Swiss Teams - David Gold, Catherine Seale, Phil King, Kevin Castner
