A unique annual competition played simultaneously in clubs all over the world. A set of pre-dealt hands is forwarded to participating clubs and played at a normal duplicate. The scores are then sent to the WBF's central computer which produces world wide results and classification. Tens of thousands of players take part without having to move from their home place. The event has been described as the world's biggest sports competition.
Do join us for this event, which is enormously good fun, with a great commentary, and which gives you the chance to compete against other pairs from all over the world - a rare opportunity indeed. Because it is scored using the ECatsBridge system, you get masses of information showing you exactly how you fared on the night. You can watch as clubs upload from all around the world, and get the "buzz" of excitement as the scores change.
