LATEST NEWS

This year we are simplifying the booking process by splitting it into two parts.

Reservation:  players (and non-players) will complete the Reservation form to tell us they are coming to the tournament, to book and pay for the events they intend to play in and any social events, and to reserve one of our hotel packages if required.  We will reply by email with the total price to pay, and an ID CODE for each person included in the reservation.

Registration:  once you have your ID code, you can complete the Registration form for the Open Pairs and/or Open Teams with your partner, provided he or she also has an ID code. This step will register your entry with the Directors.  If you do not already have a Madeira International BRIDGEMATE NUMBER, it will be allocated at this stage; if you have played in the tournament before, we will use the same BRIDGEMATE NUMBER as last time.

Hence, players will have two numbers:

  • Reservation ID Code, which identifies you for hotel bookings and payments
  • BridgeMate number, which identifies you for scoring purposes.

You will not have to remember these numbers:  everyone will be issued with a barcoded badge at the Welcome Desk, and will need to wear or carry their badge for every bridge event or social event in which they participate.

(This will avoid the situation a few players experienced last year, in which one player in a pair had told us the name of their partner, but the partner had not made a reservation, or had not paid.)

Entry fees for the 27th Madeira International Bridge Open are now available on the ENTRY FEES page.

Discounts are available for:
*Early booking (paid for by 31st August)
*Juniors (≤ 23 years old)

*Packages

 

We will open for bookings on 1st June.
