The Pairs Championship has reached the last week of the semi final stage. Martinez de Irujo and Goni III have already qualified for the final following wins over Olaizola II/Mendizabal II and Bengoetxea VI/Beloki. They play Berasaluze VIII and Begino tomorrow (Saturday) in a dead rubber. Sunday is when fingernails will be bitten to the quick; the destination of the second final berth depends entirely on the game between the two Asegarce pairs Olaizola II/Mendizabal II and Bengoetxea VI/Beloki. The winner takes it all.

The final is to be held at Atano III, San Sebastian, on 29th March
