SWEDISH BRIDGE FESTIVAL

Swedish Bridge Festival 2021

Swedish Bridge Festival Conditions of Contest

The Swedish bridge festival includes the CHAIRMANS CUP. This is a popular event held in Sweden annually but is this year online on Realbridge and hence more accessible to players of good standing in Wales.  The entry fee for Pairs of 150 SEK per person translates to around £12.50 per person and that of 2400 SEK for Teams is about £200.

This is a good opportunity for Welsh players to play in this event without having the associated costs of travelling and staying in Sweden.
