Dear EBU member
With the current concerns surrounding coronavirus, if any changes are required to be made to the events detailed below, we will keep you informed via the EBU website.
The coming weeks and months are always full of events for all standards of players, and this year is no exception. We have a range of competitions suitable for congress newcomers and less-experienced players, and some of these are highlighted below. Specifically for 'higher ranked' players there's the Spring Foursomes on the horizon, which always attracts a strong field. With regional events, and the Easter Festivals, there really is something for everyone - we hope there's something here to take your fancy.
As always, if you have any queries about any of the events featured here then please don't hesitate to contact the Competitions Department on 01296 317203/219 or at email@example.com. Entries can be made by calling this number, or through My EBU, the members area of the website - www.ebu.co.uk/members.
The National Pairs takes place this Sunday 15th March, and there is still time to enter to take part in this nationwide, yet local, competition. To find out if a venue near you is hosting a heat, check out the full list of venues here. Hopefully there is a heat near you and you will be keen to take part.
