Source: ENGLISH BRIDGE UNION The next EBU Simultaneous Pairs takes place Monday 7th to Thursday 10th February. All clubs are welcome to join in the “Junior Squad Sim Pairs” which aims to celebrate and promote junior bridge in England. Funds raised from the event go directly into the junior squad budgets. The event remains in the familiar fun format, suitable for everyone to play, not just juniors! I hope you will support this event and look forward to you playing. This Sim Pairs is slightly different to others Sims events, the first set of deals can be played on Monday or Tuesday. The second set can be played on Wednesday or Thursday. This means a larger field in each competition, making it more interesting and enjoyable for those who take part.
