THE JOSEPH GREENFELD 9TH ASIA PACIFIC BRIDGE FEDERATION OPEN CONGRESS


 

2020 World Class Bridge in Western Australia,
April 15th - 22nd

Perth Convention Centre

The ABF has chosen a world class venue, Perth Convention Centre, to host this event: right on the banks of the Swan River in the City, close to both the train and bus port, within walking distance to first class hotels, restaurants and attractions.

In the year of the Summer Olympics the APBF holds an Open Congress which is a transnational event, welcoming players from all over the world, without limitation as to the number of participants per country.

We acknowledge from the outset the enthusiastic and generous contribution to this event by the Greenfeld Family in recognising the significant contribution made to Australian Bridge by Joseph Greenfeld at both state and national level. Joe was an ABF Councillor for more than twenty years, Treasurer and President and made major contributions to ensuring the financial stability of the ABF and support for international competition and major tournaments.

The Congress commences with a Two Day Swiss Pairs Event on the Wednesday and the Thursday. This event will attract cash prizes of at least $7500.- a huge thank you to Packer and Co for sponsoring this event. The main event is the APBF Teams with categories of Open, Senior, Ladies, Mixed and Youth which will allow under 26, under 21 and under 16 subject to entries. Entries have already come to Robina from overseas players.

Following the teams qualifying event will be the APBF Pairs which provides for free entry to those players from the Teams not qualifying for the Finals - for the comparable event. Running concurrently to the Congress is a Bridgefest catering to all levels - there will be single session events as well an All Day Pairs event on Saturday followed by a Teams event on the Sunday.

The finale shall be an event for the lt 500 Masterpoints in categories of lt 500, lt 300 and lt 100 running for the last two days. This event is sponsored by TBIB - well known for their generosity towards the bridge community with our own local club WABC making a contribution towards this event as well. The Bridgefest has been well supported by the Western Australian clubs who have generously agreed to sponsor session events. We thank Melville, Mandurah, WABC, South Perth and Nedlands.
