Club Pairs Challenge Heats, 18 to 22 August
Qualifying Heats of the Club Pairs Challenge were held all last week. Players finishing in the top third in their heats (ie those earning master points) are eligible to take part in the Challenge Final at Ripley on 12th October, where it is likely that every pair will earn further points (at a very generous level!). 50 and the Peggy Griffin Cup will go to the winning pair. The entry fee is 8 per player, which includes tea/coffee and biscuits.

Heat organisers should send a copy of their results and a list of qualifying pairs to as soon as possible, but before 27th September.

Qualifying pairs who intend to play in the Final should register themselves for the Final online at the Competition Entry page, or contact either Jill or the Competitions Secretary, Frances Trebble, at the usual address.

Metropolitan Cup, 7th September

As Surrey are now organising the Metropolitan Cup again after Sussex have done so for several years, we have been searching for a new venue in which to hold the event. However, despite communicating with more than 20 potential venues, we have had to concede defeat for the time being.

Therefore, this year's Metropolitan Cup event will again be held at East Grinstead Sports Club, on 7th September.

Are you interested in representing Surrey?
Surrey are looking for pairs who would like to be considered for the Home Counties League which runs between October and May - there are 4/5 matches in all, on Thursdays at Young Chelsea BC. Each match is 24 boards. If you are interested please contact
EBU web site, you and the SCBA newsletter

  • Your personal details e.g. email address - Click on 'My details'
  • Your masterpoints (Click on 'Masterpoints') and where you won them (Sessions - the page that you start on)
