NSW State Wide Pairs
August 4-24, 2008

The NSW State Wide Pairs runs for three sessions over three weeks, early in August. Hands are provided together with a booklet, which features brief commentary on each deal for perusal at the completion of the session.

The event is then scored across all participating clubs and session and overall winners determined.

Cash prizes are presented, as well as gift vouchers from the Bridge Shop and certificates for the winners in each club. Prizes are also awarded in the restricted divisions of Under 25, Under 50 and Under 100 masterpoints (as at 30th June 2008).
