It is stressed that ALL members are entitled to play at the Club every Wednesday evening of the Bridge Year.

Members may either select their partners in accordance with the various competition rules in order to qualify, or alternatively, they may play with whomever they wish and not qualify.

The Anniversary Pairs Tournament, Three Night Matches and the Presidents events are primarily intended to foster a better club spirit by encouraging members of any ability to play together in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

RULES GOVERNING COMPETITIONS

Although Senior and Junior Pairs play together in the same group they are placed separately and awarded separate trophies for the Premier Pairs, Plate Pairs, Individual and Overall Individual competitions. Whereas for the Three Night Matches all partnerships (Junior, Senior or Mixed) participate in the same competition.

PREMIER PAIRS

15 ROUNDS. To qualify, a player must play at least 10 Rounds with the same partner. If more than 10 Rounds are played with the same partner, all such rounds will be counted.   Progressive results will be posted after each round.  After three rounds the top six Pairs will be seeded. The Committee may approve a permanent substitute for anyone unable to continue in the Competition. If a Pair consists of a Senior and a Junior player the pair will be regarded as a Senior Pair. 

The Senior and Junior Pairs trophies are awarded to the winners in this competition.

PLATE PAIRS

12 ROUNDS. To qualify, a player must play at least 8 Rounds with the same partner, which must be with a partner other than their regular partner for Premier Pairs nights. Same rules apply as for Premier Pairs.

INDIVIDUAL

5 ROUNDS. To qualify, a player must play at least 4 Rounds, each with a different partner. If more than 4 Rounds are played, all such rounds will be counted except when more than one round has been played with the same partner, in which case only the first such round will be counted. If a pair consists of a Senior and a Junior player the pair will be regarded as a Senior Pair and consequently the score will not count towards the Junior partner's qualification in the Junior competition.

Senior and Junior Pairs trophies are awarded to the winners in this competition.

OVERALL INDIVIDUAL

To qualify, a player must qualify in each of these competitions - Premier Pairs, Plate Pairs and Individual.  To determine the Overall Individual winner the final percentages counted in these three Competitions are averaged.

A Junior, playing with a Senior in either Pairs competitions will be regarded as a Senior in the Overall Individual Competition.

Senior and Junior trophies are awarded to the winners in this competition.

PRESIDENTS COMPETITION

For Senior/Junior Mixed Partnerships.

4 Rounds.  To qualify a player must play at least 3 rounds. Each round can be played with a different senior/junior partner, who must not be their Premier or Plate Pairs partner. Two rounds can be played with the same partner. If more than 3 qualifying rounds are played then all such rounds will count.

The committe would like ALL juniors to partner a Senior player.  The partner finder will actively facilitate matching partners for this competition.  

Please SENIORS ask a Junior.   Senior and Junior Pairs trophies are awarded to the winners in this Competition.

THREE NIGHT MATCHES

Such matches are played on 3 consecutive Club nights. A player, to qualify in a match, must play each night of the match with the same partner, (and each match with a different partner), who must not be their Premier Pairs or Plate Pairs partner. One substitute will be allowed for each match. Double substitution is not permitted. (ie A player playing in the competition may not act as a substitute for another Pair.)

ANNIVERSARY PAIRS

THIS EVENT WILL BE RUN ON THE SUNDAY OF OUR ANNIVERSARY WEEKEND 24-26 MARCH.

This event is a single session tournament. Qualifying eligibility is restricted to Club members and past Club members. Players may choose a partner from any grade. Pairs are split into 3 groups based on the strength of each pair. This is generally assessed on NZ Rating Points. Trophies are awarded to the overall winner plus the winner of each group.
