Club Events - Pairs


Championship Pairs

This is on the third Tuesday of the month – September to April – and scored on a gross and a handicapped basis. To qualify for a place in the final standings a pair must play in at least 5 of the 8 rounds, and the best 5 scores will count. The pair with the best gross cumulative score wins the Championship Pairs Trophy. The pair with the best cumulative score after handicap wins the Joe Bloomberg Trophy.

The Newcomer Trophy will be awarded to the pair ranked below ‘Master’ with the best gross cumulative score. Previous winners of the Newcomer Trophy are not eligible.


Swiss Pairs (Currently running online but the trophies are not being awarded)

This event is currently being run online on the first Monday of each month.

Prevously it was run on different days during the summer (Summer Swiss Pairs) and winter (Winter Swiss Pairs) consisting of several rounds. This is likely to recommence in due course with individual prizes for the winners so players will not need to play with the same partners in each session.
