The NZB grading is completely separate from our own club grading and is used for tournaments only.
The purpose of the Master Point Scheme is:
- To stimulate interest in duplicate bridge.
- To provide a means of measuring and recording the achievements of players of organised duplicate bridge.
There are three categories of Master Point Awards.
A Points: Awarded to players who finish in the top placings of approved tournaments and to all session winners of Pairs Tournaments approved for the award of A Points.
B Points: Awarded to players who finish in the top placings of approved tournaments which do not qualify for the award of A Points and to all session winners of Pairs Tournaments approved for the award of B Points. B Points are not convertible to A Points.
C Points: Awarded to players who are successful in any one session of play in tournaments and club play organised by a licensed club, centre or the NZCBA.
100 C points convert to one B point.
B points are not convertible to A points.
A points are earned at A point tournaments.
Information regarding NZ Bridge Master Points and an individual’s points is available on the NZ Bridge website.
