The Youth Tournament started on Thursday 27th July. During the tournament, the students played in Pairs and Teams session with all students getting a good feel for playing bridge at an international tournament. A great result for us is any pair getting close to or above 50%. Special mention goes to Zahra for showing great sportsmanship when she allowed a young player to take back a revoke, and that cost her and her partner getting 2nd in her section, and 1st in B in the section! Well done Zahra!!
