The Spring Fours is one of the great events in the English calendar. The principal event has become one of the toughest events in domestic bridge played for the Provost Cup. It is run on double-elimination lines over nine sessions each of 32 boards. A secondary event, the Punchbowl, will be open to teams eliminated before Saturday evening. It has a round-robin qualifier followed by a mini knockout. The Hamilton Cup is a more relaxed event for teams seeking a game on Monday (bank holiday in England).

Venue and Tariff
Well mainly because, in our opinion, it is the best teams event on the EBU calendar! Spanning five days, you get a lot of bridge for your money and a great experience to boot. This is what one of our members said about it: "As a life-long underperformer, I revelled in the chance of playing in this event. Seeds don't enter the Gold Cup until round 3, so I thought I would never face off against the world's best. At the Spring Foursomes, though, I had a great chance of losing to the likes of Zia Mahmood, Andrew Robson and David Burn. Maybe I'll be losing to your team this year!" -Edgar Dolittle, Tunbridge Wells
