This weekend saw the trials for the European Open. Following late corrections and the withdrawal of one pair from the next stage, the seven qualifying pars are now:
Michael Byrne & Kieran Dyke
Alex Hydes & Ben Handley-Pritchard
Mike Bell & Ben Norton
John Atthey & Neil Rosen
Ben Green & Ankush Khandelwal
Phil King & Andrew McIntosh
David Kendrick & Paul Barden
They will join Jeffrey Allerton & Chris Jagger, David Bakhshi & Artur Malinowski and Andrew Robson & David Gold in the final stage.
We would like to pass on our thanks to the East Midlands Bridge Club, who have proven to be an excellent and accommodating new venue.
