Each club can hold two NAP (North American Pairs) games per sanctioned session during each of the months of June, July and August.

The NAP event has been a major ACBL pair championship since 1979 and was originally known as the Grand National Pairs. This grassroots event is staged in qualifying rounds at the club, unit and district levels. It culminates in a final held in conjunction with the 2019 Spring NABC, in Memphis, TN. The contest is run as a flighted event:

  1. Flight A Open to any player
  2. Flight B – Players with less than 2500 MPs as of the June 2018 masterpoint cycle.
  3. Flight C Non-Life Masters with fewer than 500 MPs as of the June 2018 masterpoint cycle.
