2022 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 location yet to be announced on 19-21 November. There is the possibility that the event will be played on RealBridge as it was in 2021. 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.
