  • TBIB Restricted Pairs Competition at Victorian Congresses



    The VBA, in conjunction with Tony Bemrose Insurance Brokers (TBIB), is proud to announce the introduction of a new cash prize at all Victorian Congress Swiss pairs events for restricted pairs.  Winners will receive a cash prize, plus go into the draw to win free entry into the Victor Muntz Restricted Pairs at the Victor Champion Cup, run each June in Melbourne

    The prize will be sponsored by TBIB – bridge’s largest sponsor in Australia.


    From 1stNovember, 2018 in metropolitan Melbourne congresses, and throughout Victoria from 1st February 2019, Swiss Pairs events will feature a cash prize for the best Restricted Pair (which has duly entered in advance) and an opportunity for that pair to participate in the draw for free entry into the Victor Muntz Restricted pairs at the VCC carnival in June 2019.

    Implementation is simple and will involve minimal setup for organizers. Where a member of the VBA Council is not going to be in attendance to bring materials with them, entry cards, promotional literature for TBIB and instructions will be forwarded in advance to all clubs holding congresses.

    This is a great opportunity for the largest category of congress bridge participants to have an additional reward for participation and to be more fully recognized. While the benefits of ensuring the competition is supported at your congress should hopefully be obvious, it should be noted that participation is mandatory for all clubs affiliated with the VBA when conducting congresses.

    Details for clubs and players are set out in the document links below
