Teams Events under the Waikato-Bays Region's Umbrella

Two inter-club Teams competitions take place within the Region. Our clubs meet in either the Bay Teams who have contested the Ib Thulin Shield since 1959 or the Waikato Inter-Club Teams (WIT). Although there is provision for composite teams, in broad terms each club fields teams in all three grades to play IMP Teams against others in the same grade. The Victory Points are added across the grades fielded under each banner to determine the year's Teams champion club.

These events also serve to produce the two best teams in each grade. It is possible that a club might win the Bay Teams or the WIT but not qualify its Open team if that team didn't finish first or second in the Open grade. The top two teams in each grade from both sides of The Hill meet to determine which club's name will be engraved on that year's Grade Trophies. This event is sponsored by the Waikato-Bays Region and is usually a 3-match 16-board round-robin in each grade.
