The Gold Cup is the UK's most prestigious team competition run by Bridge Great Britain.  And because there is a 'consolation event' for 1st and 2nd round losers, everybody is guaranteed at least two matches.

Normally teams from Scotland play one another in order to keep travel to a minimum but this year, because of Covid, all 1st and 2nd round matches are being played on-line.  This gives us a unique opportunity to play teams from far flung parts of England and Wales. I think that Scottish teams will enjoy the opportunity this brings, particularly because the seeded teams do not join in until Rd 3 so we all have a good chance to win some matches.  And if you do lose in an early round, entry to the Marion Hill trophy is free.  

I hope you will support this long standing and prestigious event.
