Saturday 4th July - huge event! Three teams - Open, Intermediate and Junior - from each of eight Waikato clubs slugged it out in the annual Waikato InterClub Teams held at the Hamilton clubrooms.

The Hamilton folk did us proud with base tables set up attractively for each club team in the O'Neill Room while the matches took place in the adjoining Richmond Room.

IP Team Announced

The team to represent the Waikato-Bays region at the InterProvincials to be held in November at Christchurch is:


A special one-session event, the Novice Pairs, is to be held at the 2015 National Bridge Congress at The Kingsgate Hotel, Te Rapa, Hamilton starting at 2pm on Sunday September 27th. The cost will be $10.00 per player.

This excellent initiative aims to give new players a flavour for tournament bridge and show them what the National Congress is like. The Novice Pairs will be played in the main playing room at the same time as the New Zealand Pairs and Restricted Pairs are being played. There will be prizes and finger-food after play for those in the Novice Pairs.

The definition of a Novice is contained on the attached poster. Pre-entry is not required but would be appreciated.

The best Intermediates were Cecily Munro pairing with Gloria Hawthorne who took out sixth place. Gloria - loved your bright red top!
