North American Pairs and Club Championships

North American Pairs (NAP) Club Qualifying

Qualifiers move on to District NAP finals. There will be a District 6 2022-2023 NAP Finals online, October 15-16, 2022. Players are going to need to be club qualified to play. There are three flights in the event:  Open, Flight B (0-2500), and Non-Life Master (0-500).

Club qualifier games are being held from June-August 2022. There are both face-to-face and online games available in which to qualify. Click on “Club Qualifier Games” in the left-hand column of the website here to find dates and locations of upcoming games. Games in red are being held online. All others are face-to-face.

Winners will play in the Spring NABC being held March 9-19, 2023 in New Orleans, LA. Once you and your partner are club qualified, you must pre-register to play in the District Finals.

To pre-register: send your names, an email address where we can communicate with you, your ACBL numbers, your BBO names, the flight you want to enter and a check for $50 (make check out to District Six) to cover the first two sessions on Saturday (or entire event on Sunday for NLM) to:

Lucy McCoy (address envelope to Lucy McCoy, make check out to District Six by October 6)
3353 Taleen Ct.
Annandale, VA 22003

Players who qualify will get $700 for first place, $500 for second place, $300 for third place and $200 for fourth place to offset the cost of hotel rooms and travel.
