Club Mixed Pairs Championship

The Mixed Pairs Championship will be held at the club on Sunday 18th April. It will be run over 2 sessions commencing at 9.30am and finishing about 4.30pm. Cost is $8 for the day.

The event is a red point event and is the qualifier for the State Mixed Pairs Final which will be held at the NSWBA on 29-30 May.

The club will sponsor two pairs to the State Final. If fewer than 12 pairs enter, the event will not be run, and the club can nominate 2 pairs to the final.

To be eligible to win the Club Championship event or receive any subsidies, members will need to have played in a minimum of 3 Newcastle Bridge Club sessions in the preceding 12 months – a reduction due to the impact of COVID-19 restrictions.

Please get your entry in using the registration system.

Rookie Row

The committee has decided to introduce a “Rookie Row” in the Wednesday session starting on Wednesday 4th March at 10am. This will be for a trial period of two months.

To be eligible all players must have fewer than 20 Masterpoints as at 29th February 2020.

Play will start and end at the same time as the main session but the boards will be scored separately. A standby player will be available.

We encourage you to support this initiative.
