Club Management Focus: Spring 2013

Simultaneous Pairs Events

by Andrew Urbanski

The EBU is your organisation and there are several simultaneous pairs events that help you in terms of raising funds for further development of the game of duplicate bridge – any surplus we make is ploughed back in to the game, for example we have trained over 200 club teachers for no charge since April 2010 and over 300 clubs have benefitted from our buy one get one free club tournament director training – so it is really worth your while to support the EBU and British Sim Pairs, the Bridge England Sim Pairs and the Club Stratified Sim Pairs. These also provide the players in your club with the opportunity to:

  • compete against other clubs across England
  • win enhanced master points and Blue Points from 1 January 2013
  • read a commentary on the hands – showing the best line of play, what can go right and what can go wrong!
  • receive a commemorative pen if they win a club heat
  • have their photograph in English Bridge if they are an overall national winner of each day’s sim pairs session which will also include a mention of your club.

So please do support the simultaneous pairs events that support you.

If you want any help or information we are here to assist. Andrew Urbanski is your first port of call on or 01296 317206.
