Dear Bridge friends,

We are pleased to announce the Australian Online Women's Bridge Festival.

This will take place from 31st August - 4th September and full information can be found by clicking here

The 2015 Autumn Festival will be held from 9th - 15th November 2015

The main prize for the 2015 Autumn Festival and the 2016 Spring Festival to be held in April 2016 (dates to be decided) will be Free entry to the National Women's Pairs event to be held during the World Bridge Games in Wroclaw, Poland for the winner and a partner of her choice. Because this event is a national and not a transnational pairs, both players must be eligible to play as representatives of the same NBO - i.e. they must be members in good standing of the same National Bridge Organisation. They will also receive free accommodation in a twin room for the duration of the Women's Pairs Championship.

The 2015 Spring Festival was held from 13th - 19th April 2015

Adriana DutuMany congratulations to Adriana Dutu from Romania who has won the WBF Women's Online Bridge Festival held from 13 - 19 April. Adriana is delighted to have won the overall prize of free entry to the European Women's Pairs Championship in Tromsø, Norway with a partner of her choice - Romana Tanese.

Adriana tells us that the Festival "was a very challenging and fun experience and for sure I will participate to the next one in November. The organisers and our daily tournament guests did a wonderful job"

We wish Adriana an equally enjoyable experience at the European Championships.

There were 6 tournaments each day - two individual, two pairs and two robot duplicate tournaments. Click here to find out more about robot tourneys. The overall winner will be the player with the best 10 results in all the Festival tournaments.

For the first time this year, the tournament was extended to include all women players who have registered with BBO and have a registered "nick", and not just those who have registered with our site. BUT IT IS REALLY IMPORTANT that Festival participants register through our Site because the final prizes in the overall classification will ONLY be awarded to the women players who have completed our Registration form. Of course you need not do this if you have participated in previous Festivals as you will already have done that.

The overall winner of the event won free entry for herself and a partner of her choice to the European Women's Pairs Championship in Tromso (you can find all the information about this fantastic event on the website set up for the event - click here to go to it).

The next Festival will be held from 9th - 15th November and the prize for the overall winner will be free entry for herself and a partner of her choice to the National World Women's Pairs Championship in Wroclaw, Poland. This will be subject to certain conditions which will be published in due course.
