Year End Congress, London

27th - 30th December 2021, ILEC Conference Centre, London Earls Court and RealBridge

This congress is held between Christmas and New Year over four days.

There will also be online events for those that wish to take part, but cannot attend in person.

The Swiss Teams and Swiss Pairs are both stratified events.

Jack High Swiss Pairs. This event is aimed at club players who are interested in taking the first steps into congress bridge but who may have found it daunting to jump straight into a major congress event. In order to qualify to play in this event, you must have an NGS of no higher than ‘Jack’ at the time of entering. We envisage that at the lower end, players will be ‘7’ or higher. The event will be stratified too so that there are extra Master Points and an extra prize available for pairs of players both ranked ‘9’ or lower. We reserve the right to decline entries from those who may meet the NGS requirements, but have significant tournament experience and are not among the 'congress-novices' at whom the event is aimed. The format will be six 6-board matches with a break after three matches. This competition is priced at a discounted rated to encourage new participants to congress bridge. A discount is available to clubs making a booking for a group of its members - please contact the competitions department for more details (comps@ebu.co.uk or 01296 317203)
