The most recent competition for the James Jones Swiss Pairs Cup was held on Saturday 30 July 2022 at the Young Chelsea Bridge Club in London. It was a close competition with the lead changing often throughout the day. The worthy winners were (the holder from 2019) Gitte Hecht-Johansen and her partner Szczepan Smoczynski with 67.8%.

The Brunel Trophy is a handsome cut glass crystal bowl which has been contested for every year since 1990 when it was presented to the club by Travers Morgan. The format is a multiple teams-of-four event held over two sessions during the daytime.
In the evening there is a meal taken at a nearby restaurant. This is the best time for the organiser!
The Brunel Trophy will next be held on Friday 6 October 2023.
