Club Teams Championship 2018

A decision was made at the April Committee meeting that there will be no qualifying rounds for the Club Teams Championship. Instead the event will be held as a single day event on Sunday 22 July, with a morning and afternoon session. This decision is consistent with the one previously made for the Club Pairs Championship.

A reminder that to be eligible to win this event, players must:

  • Be financial members of the Newcastle Bridge Club; and
  • Have played a minimum of six sessions in the preceding twelve months (excluding GNOTs, Country Teams, State Open Pairs and Club Champion events).
