The club hosted the third and final “weekend” of the EBU Premier League First Division on Friday & Saturday, 6 & 7 November. The eight teams played a complete round‑robin of 16‑board matches over the weekend. Play was in the Warwick and teaching rooms, with BBO coverage of one match each round. The Saturday finish was to allow some of the competitors to catch a plane that evening to an invitation bridge event in China.

 

The club held its regular IMP pairs on Friday too, and managed to squeeze thirteen tables into the match room.

 

A very close finish saw Premier League victory for team MOSSOP (David Mossop, Jason Hackett, Justin Hackett, Alex Hydes, David Price, and Colin Simpson). The team members have earned the right to represent England over one of the Camrose (home international) weekends early next year.

 

Full results may be found on the EBU website.
