We are inviting clubs to express an interest in holding heats

for a number of EBU events.

MASTERS PAIRS - SUNDAY 1 MARCH 2020

We would like to get a few more clubs involved for next

year, particularly (but not only) to plug the geographical

gaps in the Midlands and North-West. It is a two-session

event, open to players who have not yet reached the rank of

Regional Master.

NATIONAL PAIRS - SUNDAY 15 MARCH 2020

We are adopting the same format for the National Pairs

from next year. Club-based heats will be scored across the

field, with the top 50 pairs in the overall ranking list

qualifying for the National Final. The event is a two-session

event open to all EBU members, and the final is part of the

Championship Series and carries significant Green Point

awards.

We have already asked clubs who were involved last time

to express an interest, and we are now able to throw it open

to all clubs.nick@ebu.co.ukvoid geographical clashes we are

essentially adopting a first-come, first-served policy.

If you are interested please contact Nick Doe

(nick@ebu.co.uk) at Aylesbury for further information.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO RUN A CLUB OR

COUNTY HEAT OF AN EBU EVENT?
