The eighth Welwyn Garden City Tournament will be held on Saturday 19th May 2018, at the Bridge Room Gosling Sports Park, Welwyn Garden City, Herts AL8 6XE by kind permission of the Welwyn Garden City Bridge Club.


The format will now revert to 3 rounds McMahon with 60 minutes and 20/5 overtime. There is however much less time pressure than in previous years.

The projected timetable will be as follows:

10:00 to 12:00 Round 1
12:00 to 13:30 Lunch
13:30 to 15:30 Round 2

19:00 Prizegiving


The basic entry fee will be £14 or £11 for concessions. There is an early bird discount of £3 if booked on or before 1st April 2018. There is a £3 supplement for players not members of the BGA.

There is a late entry fee of £5 if booked less than a week before.


Prizes will be given to the overall winner and to all players scoring 2½ or more out of 3. At the discretion of the organisers some additional prizes may be given to other players who have won 2 games or who have otherwise distinguished themselves, depending on numbers.


During the morning tea and coffee and biscuits will be available from the Bridge Club facilities for a small charge.

From midday the bar will be open and quality tea and coffee will be available from there, as well as soft and alcoholic drinks.


We have decided not to offer a buffet lunch this time as there is an excellent cafe in the adjoining building and various local shops.


All entrants are invited to join us for dinner after the tournament at a venue to be chosen.
