Entry Fee

The entry fee remains unchanged at just US$2, £1.50 GBP or €1.80 per player per event. Payment instructions will be sent with the information to the participating clubs.

Do join us for this event, which is enormously good fun and gives you the chance to compete against other pairs from all over the world - a rare opportunity indeed. Because it is scored using the ECatsBridge system, you get masses of information showing you exactly how you fared on the night. You can watch as clubs upload from all around the world, and get the "buzz" of excitement as the scores change. Clubs can enter one or more heats and players can play at different clubs on different days (obviously not twice on the same day!). Players must not pass on details of the hands to anyone or any club playing later in the day and must not play twice at different clubs.

The commentary will be provided via email - the cost of printing and distributing the booklets would mean that we would have to raise the price considerably and that would make the event much more expensive for the participants. So instead we will be providing the commentary as a downloadable PDF file after the event.
