Partner Finder - Stephanie Galbraith - 3135142 or 027 3918343

The following Competitions will be played:-


12 Rounds, 9 to qualify for trophies. All rounds played with the same partner, who must be a different person from the Rata Pairs partner. If more than 9 Rounds are played all such rounds will be counted. There are Senior and Junior competitions.  If a junior plays with a senior they are counted in the senior competition.


10 Rounds, 8 to qualify, all rounds played with the same partner, who must be a partner other than their regular partner for Rimu Pairs.  If more than 8 rounds are played all such rounds will be counted. As with Rimu there are Senior and Junior Competitions. If a junior plays with a senior they are counted in the senior competition.


5 Rounds, 4 to qualify.  Each Round to be played with a different partner. If more than 4 Rounds are played all will count except when more than one has been played with the same partner and then only the first such Round will count.  If a pair consists of a Senior and Junior player, the pair will be regarded as a Senior pair, consequently the score will not count towards the Junior partner's qualification. 


Senior/Junior Mixed partnerships

6 ROUNDS. 4 to qualify. Each round can be played with a different senior/juniorpartner who must not be their Rimu or Rata Pairs partner.  Two rounds can be played with the same partner.  If more than 4 qualifying rounds are played all will be counted. 

The competition is designed for juniors to benefit from the experience of playing with seniors and the committee would like ALL seniors to partner a junior player.  The convenor, partner finder and commitee will provide active support to enable pairing of seniors and juniors.  Please seniors, ask a Junior.

For those members who do not wish to participate in the competition for trophies there will be a separate section played with the same boards.  The Director will set up two events and score them separately, each being assigned C points.


To qualify, a player must qualify in each of these competitions:- Rimu Pairs, Rata Pairs and Individual. To determine the Overall Individual winner the final percentages in these three Competitions are averaged. A Junior, playing with a Senior in any of the competitions will be regarded as a Senior in the Overall Individual Competition.


Such matches are played on 2 or 3 consecutive Club days. To qualify, a player must play all days of a match with the same partner, and play each match with a different partner,who must not be their Rimu or Rata Pairs partner. However, one substitute is allowed for each 3 day match.  Double substitution is not permitted (ie a player who is already playing or who has played as a substitute in the competition cannot be a substitute for another pair).  Substitute partners must be declared on the table slip before play starts each day.  No substitution is allowed in the 2 day match.


These are Non-Competition days when there are no partnership requirements and members may play with whomever they wish. Open days which fall on Public Holidays are subject to sufficient numbers of players signifying an intention to play.


Teams of 4 will compete in a round robin with no restrictions on playing combinations.  Substiutions will be allowed and players will find their own substitutes if required.  The winning team and the best Junior pair/team (if they are not part of the winning team) will receive a prize.

If members choose not to play Teams, then the instructions for the 3 Night Pairs Matches will apply.


Refer to Teams, Graded, Tournaments tab.
