2021 Inter-Provincial Finals
NZ Bridge is continuing to hold this event as four “man” teams separate to the National Congress. This year it will be in Auckland on 20-22 November. Please note that the finals have a huge impact on our finances. We will apply for a grant towards the costs, but there is no guarantee we will receive any funding. Therefore, please be aware that the region will only be able to fund accommodation on a twin-share basis.

NZ Bridge normally announces a travel subsidy for this event.
