We would like to thank all the clubs that participated in this fundraiser. Thanks to their generous support we have raised a little over £2,500 for our International Fund.

We had a total of 719 pairs in 47 clubs, with 51 sets of results. (The Bridge Club in Aberdeen played 4 separate heats, and Biggar chipped in with 2.)
There were also 26 heats in Wales and 7 in Northern Ireland

Full results are available on bridge.ecats.co.uk

Individual club rankings and winners certificates have been posted to all participating clubs. These tell you how many master points you have earned – they will be allocated centrally on Mempad.

Congratulations on these outstanding performances:

And perhaps some of the non-participants could find a club night in April?


If you would like to play but are not on the list; or if your club cannot participate in April; please get in touch with Liz McGowan () who will make the necessary arrangements.

Please also keep a date available for the 2016 Winter Pairs in the first week in December, 2016
