The Inter-Provincials (affectionally known as the "IPs")
This is one of the premier events on the NZ Bridge calendar, which pits Region versus Region. Parochialism and bridge passion unites teams of all grades.  Everyone will be striving to play their best for their province. 

Each grade has their own unique competition and their placings also means points towards the Dougal McLean Trophy (see below) for the top Region.

The 2017 event is in Wellington on the 24th to 26th November.  Good luck everyone
There will be regular updates and be happenings on the NZB Facebook and this website, so keep watching.
