The World Wide Bridge Contest
Welcome to the pages about the World Wide Bridge Contest - the biggest Simultaneous Pairs that we run!
The 2015 World Wide Bridge Contest will be on
Friday 5th & Saturday 6th June
Announcement: we are very pleased to announce that the WBF has agreed to donate a part of the profit from the event, up to 5,000 Euro, to the Nepal Disaster Fund. Please help us to ensure that we are able to send them the full amount by participating in the event if you possibly can! And of course, players can send in extra donations for Nepal if they wish to, over and above the entry fees.
This year the commentary will be provided via email - the cost of printing and distributing the booklets would mean that we would have to raise the price considerably and that would make the event much more expensive for the participants. So instead we will be providing the commentary as a downloadable PDF file after the event. Mark Horton, Editor of Bridge Magazine and well known for his writing in Championship Bulletins all over the world has done the commentary on this occasion.
Do join us for this event, which is enormously good fun and gives you the chance to compete against other pairs from all over the world - a rare opportunity indeed. Because it is scored using the ECatsBridge system, you get masses of information showing you exactly how you fared on the night. You can watch as clubs upload from all around the world, and get the "buzz" of excitement as the scores change.
Clubs will be able to pay in US Dollars, Euro or British Pounds, making payment simple. Cheques in British Pounds are also fine. Click here to email Anna for more information.
