Online Year End Congress

Due to Covid, the usual Year End Congresses in London and Blackpool will not be taking place face-to-face this year. Instead we will be running an online Year End Congress, held on RealBridge.

The online congress will be held between Christmas and New Year over four days, 27th to 30th December.

There will be the usual events, Mixed or Open Pairs, Jack High Pairs, Swiss Pairs and Teams. The Swiss Pairs and Swiss Teams are both stratified events.

There will also be a Jack High Swiss Pairs, with a Zoom seminar the next morning to go through the hands. It will also be stratified for pairs who are 9-high or 6-high.
