Entries are now open for the one of the great events in the English calendar, the Schapiro Spring Foursomes, in 2020.
The principal event, the Schapiro Trophy, has become one of the toughest events in domestic bridge. 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 Sunday.
Due to the generous sponsorship arrangement in place for this event, prizes are approximately twice the normal EBU value (e.g. approx £1,600 - £2,000 for the winning team based on the typical size of the original entries). We wish to express our gratitude to Mrs Helen Schapiro in supporting this most prestigious event in this way, and in donating a trophy in the name of her husband, the late, and truly great, Boris Schapiro.
It is part of the Championship Series, in which points can be earned towards the Player of the Year Championship.
