festivalparis_blog_en

The second edition of the International Bridge Festival of Paris, organised by Philippe Soulet and Claude Katan at Paris Country Club, was held from 7th to 13th November.

As you can see in the ranking lists below, the Festival of Paris is an opportunity to meet bridge players with impressive playing records (World Champions, European Champions, Champions of France, etc.)!

But this festival is above all the ideal place to relax and share the same passion, all this in scenic surroundings.

As the official partner of the event, once again Funbridge sponsored the Paris Championship, reserved for Series 4, 3 and 2 players (or unranked players). This year it took place at the same time as the IMP tournament on 7th and 8th November. Here is an overview of the results:
