ANNUAL RATING POINTS RECALCULATION
The calculation is currently completed as at 31 December each year and published online as soon as possible thereafter.
The new Rating Points and Gradings come into effect for the purpose of Tournament participation as soon as they are published on the NZ Bridge Website.
The Board of NZ Bridge sets the fees it charges Regions and Clubs to issue Master Points and may amend these fees from time to time on giving 3 months Notice in writing.
The fees (+ GST where applicable) are as follows:
(a) 30 cents per competing Player per Club session
(b) $1 per competing Player per Tournament session
(c) $1 per A Point issued.
NB: For Teams or Swiss Pairs events: 2 x 12 board matches or 3 x 8 board matches equates to 1 session
On-Line Master points
Masterpoints are available on-line and updated soon after the vent is played, as we now have a "live" process to update results and Masterpoints. This started on the 5th September, 2017
Click on MY NZB tab view your own Masterpoints or CLICK HERE or the Search Masterpoints to search for others or groups for their Masterpoints. If you have recently been re instated as a player, your total points earned earlier will display but not detailed by event. If you wish to find out, it may be possible to request this information from the NZB Secretary.
On-line reports include masterpoints received from clubs or Regions at the time of publication. If you are missing any club points, please advise your Club Masterpoint Secretary. If you are missing Tournament Points, please check with the club, as they may not have realised their results are not publishing.
Ranking Competition Results
Competitions have been set up to find the top ten ‘A’ point earners within each Ranking, split into male and female, during a calendar year. These results are updated on a monthly basis.
The Baden Wilson (for which there is a trophy) is for the top ‘A’ point earners in a calendar year based on points earned in New Zealand (Australian competitions do not count, therefore any awards from Australian competitions will be subtracted from the total at the conclusion of the calendar year).
Australian Master points
From 2013 Australian Masterpoints are converted to NZ Masterpoints automatically
