The bridge tournament, in aid of Marie Curie, has been running for over 20 years. Starting in 1994 with just 10 groups, it’s now grown to 244 groups all over the country with 2,340 players! 

The tournament is played across the UK throughout the winter months by groups of around six pairs. Each pair plays the other pairs in their group, choosing either Chicago or Rubber Bridge. You only play one couple at a time, and at your own leisure. The aim is to have lunch/supper/tea, play three rubbers or 20 hands of bridge, and then send in your scores. 

The registration fee is £4, and then we ask for a £16 donation. By raising £20 you'll pay for an hour of nursing care for someone living with a terminal illness.
