Throughout New Zealand, keen bridge players have been competing for the honour of playing for their region in the Inter-Provincial teams.
There are four divisions, Open, Women, Seniors and Intermediates.
Each of the seven regions in New Zealand sends a team of four to compete in each section.
The prize in this national tournament is the Douglas McLean Interprovincial Trophy.
Winners will be the regional team who collect the most points collated across each of the four sections.
Waikato Bays Regional BridgeMate ( RBM) Eunice Eccles said all their hopes and good wishes go with all the 16 members of the Waikato team.
