 2023 Inter-Provincial Finals From NZ Bridge to be confirmed by NZBridge

As you are aware, the 2022 Inter-Provincial competition finals were held using the Real Bridge medium, this format was very successful for this event.

Thus, the Board have decided that the finals of the 2023 event will be run using the same Real Bridge format. There are considerable financial savings in using this method  The Board wants to give certainty to the Regions.

The finals will be for Open, Women, Seniors and Intermediate. We expect there will be a Youth event, too, though information about this will be provided later.
