EBU Tunisia Congress

The March 2024 EBU Overseas Congress will take place in the stunning 5-star Barcelo Concorde Green Park Palace, Tunisia.

Set in 5 hectares of lush gardens, palm trees tower majestically around the huge 1500 metre outdoor pool which leads down to its own fine sandy beach. Its unrivalled position is close to the delightful marina in Port El Kantaoui and borders two eighteen-hole golf courses, ensuring it is one of the most sought-after hotels in the region.

The bridge fee for the EBU Green and Blue pointed Congress is included in the cost of the package.

We also include two fabulous half-day guided excursions. We visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site in El Jem, where you will view the third largest Roman amphitheatre in the world and visit the stunning Mosaic Museum. Our second excursion takes us to the fascinating Medina of Sousse. Here, you can barter for goods and admire the local way of life. We also stop in Monastir and visit the incredible mausoleum of Bourguiba and view the Ribat.

As well as the usual 7-night congress package, there is the option of a 10-night package, so you can travel out three days before the congress starts. This will allow you to relax and enjoy the hotels superb facilities or do some sightseeing before the congress begins. Bridge will also be provided on the 2 evenings prior to the tournament if there is sufficient demand.

To participate in this prestigious Green and Blue Pointed Overseas Congress, you must be an EBU member. Visit the EBU website to join.

Chris and Linda Benneworth

Chris and Linda Benneworth

Linda and Chris have been married since 1971, having met while they were teaching at the same high school.

Following successful careers in education, they retired in the late nineties and started directing together, working at first in local and more recently in overseas congresses. They ran the North Eastern Bridge Association Congress for a number of years in Otterburn, Consett and Gateshead, an event with a deserved reputation for friendliness. Since 2019, they have worked as hosts and director at EBU overseas congresses in Athens, Sicily and Rome. They even play together occasionally to ensure there are full tables. Chris is an EBU national director who also teaches others the art of directing and Linda is a qualified county director.

They both believe that bridge is a great game which is meant to be enjoyed, and a holiday is the perfect way of doing that.
