England (pictured right : Sally Brock, Fiona Brown, Heather Dhondy, Catherine Draper, Nevena Senior and Nicola Smith) won the women's teams by just 3 IMPs on the very last board, with Netherlands taking the Silver Medal. Bronze medals went to Monaco in the Open Teams and USA in the Women's event.

The Pairs event starts on Sunday 14th December.

 Four bridge teams in each category (Open and Women) are invited to participate in this extremely prestigious and high level tournament. 

As always two Bridge Ambassadors have been appointed - once again this year we are delighted to note that they will be Fulvio Fantoni from Monaco and Wang Wenfei from China. You can find out more about these two great players here.
