Sydney Metropolitan Final
NSWBA September 21-22
A knock-out teams event (28 board matches) with Swiss repechage (14 board matches). Two teams from the knockout section and two teams from the Swiss repechage qualify to the National Final, held from 29 November - 2 December.
Players who have failed to qualify via a club qualifying event may form teams and enter the Metropolitan Final directly via the NSWBA. All members of such teams must have participated in a DQE or a club qualifying event and the entry must specify the club(s) at which the members played. Augmentation of such teams at the completion of the Metropolitan Final is not permitted – the team that enters is the team that qualifies to the National Final.
