Bridge Festival 2012

In swedish | Results


The Bridge Festival will be held at the Conventum Arena in Örebro, Sweden, on July 27th - August 5th with Gold, Silver and Bronze tournaments every day.

Program for the Festival

Bridge, yes a lot of bridge, during ten days! Hopefully we will have as wonderful a summer as we had last year.
The Bridge Festival has tournaments for everybody including (but not limited to) handicap tournaments, international teams events and the final stages of the Swedish Championships. Obviously, you can come alone, our partnership agency guarantees a partner for everyone.

A Bridge Festival is quite often a matter for the whole family. If not playing bridge you can take a swim, play golf or go for a tour in the city of Örebro. During the Swedish Bridge Festival such activities are available. The difference compared to an ordinary Bridge Festival is that this particular event is considerably larger.

Every morning a Daily Bulletin will be available containing news, results, reports and a lot more from the Bridge Festival.

To participate in Festival tournaments players are requested to have taken their seats no later than five minutes before game time. For Side Events you register by filling out the form on the table. You will find those forms at the tables approximately one hour before official game time.

For the Chairman’s Cup, teams must register no later than July 27th, 20.00 hours.
