Special Intermediate and Junior events

The National Bridge Congress is for all tournament players, whether you are Open, Intermediate or Junior grade.

Many Open players have been to the National Congress before but Junior and Intermediate players may be thinking of coming for the first time. We want you, lots of you, to be there and enjoy the experience. We believe the Congress, while competitive, is also a very friendly and social place to be. We want you all to experience that, whether you come for just one day or all eight days.

As an Intermediate or Junior player, you can play in any event though there are three exclusively for you and not for Open players. It is our dream, our aim, to eventually have enough Junior pairs/ teams to have events just for Juniors but for this year, Intermediates and Juniors will play in the same field but with special prizes for Junior players.

The lower ranking Open players are allowed to play with Intermediates and Juniors in the following events:

  * New Zealand Restricted Open Pairs: Sat/Sun 29th/30th September 4 sessions (morning/afternoon both days)  
  * Congress Restricted Open Swiss Pairs: Frid/Sat - 6th/7th October 3 sessions (Friday evening, Saturday morning & afternoon)    

but these next three events are just for Intermediates and Juniors:

Please note there are special events for Intermediate and Junior players.

You are welcome to play in any Congress event but the following are just for Intermediates and Juniors:

  * New Zealand Intermediate Pairs: Thursday - 4th October   2 sessions (morning/afternoon)  
  * New Zealand Intermediate Teams:  Thursday/Friday - 4/5th October  3 sessions (Thursday evening, Friday morning & afternoon)
  * Congress Intermediate Swiss Pairs: Friday/Saturday - 5th/6th October  3 sessions (Friday evening, Saturday morning & afternoon)     

All three events above have special prizes for Junior teams/pairs. Follow this link (click here) for more details about each of the events.
