Play begins in …

Welcome

Scotland is proud to host the 4th Commonwealth Nations Bridge Championships in the Radisson Blu Hotel, Glasgow from 8th - 14th September 2014.

Each member nation of the 71 Commonwealth states is invited to enter one or two teams. Teams can consist of up to six members. The entry fee will be £1000 per team. The event will take the form of a round robin qualifying stage with the leading teams in each section progressing to head-to-head knockout matches that will identify the eventual Gold, Silver and Bronze medal winners. Expressions of interest should be sent to

The event is also open to sponsored teams and anyone interested in entering a sponsored team should contact

In addition to the main event there will be a two day Transnational Swiss Teams (TNST) event on the 12th and 13th September. This event is open to all players across the UK, Europe and beyond, not just those from Commonwealth countries. Teams eliminated from the main event will be invited, at no additional cost, to compete in the Transnational Swiss Teams. Entries received to date for this event can be seen under ‘participants’.

There will also be an Open Pairs event on the 14th September. This event is also open to all players across the UK, Europe and beyond. Any players in the main event or the Transnational Swiss Teams event will be invited to play in the Open Pairs at no additional cost.

Generous prizes will be awarded for the TNST and the Open Pairs. Teams from around the world are invited to enter these subsidiary events as this is an opportunity to play against some of the leading players in the Commonwealth. Entry fees for the TNST are £400 per team and, for the Pairs, £80 per pair. Teams entering the TNST will be eligible to play in the pairs at no additional cost.
