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 hope many Junior and Intermediate players will come 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 of Junior/Intermediate bridge or all eight days. 

As an Intermediate or Junior player, you can play in any event though there are several exclusively for you and not for Open players.
