Calling all bridge enthusiasts, Marie Curie's Bridge Tournament 2015-16 is now open for registrations - register by 31st May 2015 to get your place. This is the 20thanniversary of the Bridge Tournament in aid of Marie Curie. Starting in 1994 with just 10 groups, it’s now grown to 244 groups all over the country with 2,340 players!
This year we’re hoping to top the £750,000 mark, but we’re always looking for more groups and players. It doesn't matter what standard of bridge you play as you only play amongst friends. Take part in our annual bridge competition and raise money to help us continue caring for people with terminal illnesses and their loved ones.
The tournament is played across the UK throughout the winter months by groups of approximately six pairs, with each pair playing the other pairs in their group, playing either Chicago or Rubber Bridge. You only play one couple at a time, and at your own leisure. The idea is that you have lunch/supper/tea, play three rubbers or 20 hands of bridge, and then send in your scores.
The registraion fee is £4, and then we ask for a £16 donation. By raising £20, we'll provide an hour of nursing care for someone living with a terminally illness.
