Summer Seniors Congress (Discontinued from 2022)

As this congress is not taking place, there will be Seniors prizes available for some events at the Summer Meeting in Eastbourne August 11th-14th 2022.

A long weekend of bridge. The congress starts with the Championship Pairs, with the qualifier on Friday and the finals on Saturday.

The Saturday Swiss Pairs is open to all players eliminated from the Championship Pairs on Friday, as well as new entrants joining the event at this stage. Entry fees for this congress were significantly reduced a few years ago by eliminating the portion that would have gone towards prize money. However, the Edith Kaplan Memorial Award provides a prize of £100: awarded to the winner of the Teams Championship, along with the Edith Kaplan Trophy.

Please note: The WBF - and consequently the EBL and Bridge Great Britain - have adjusted their criteria for eligibility for Seniors events. The EBU has therefore adjusted its criteria in response to this. Please note, therefore, that to be eligible players must have their 63rd birthday or beyond during the calendar year (January-December) of the event - i.e. entrants must be born in 1959 or earlier. See here for further details.
