We are phasing out the acceptance of cheques as payment of table money at Berks & Bucks events. At county events, table money will be cash only - cheques will not be accepted.  Cheques will continue to be accepted at the Green Point events.

Welcome to Berks & Bucks CBA

Well done to Dee & Peter Lindon and Celia  & Derek Oram on winning the Burlington Cup in the Teams Secondary Final at the EBU Autumn Congress played over 20-21 October.    And a further well done to Celia  & Derek Oram who, playing with Alan Kay & Jeremy Dhondy, won the Gerard Faulkner Salver in the 2017-18 Senior Knockout Teams competition  - the 3rd time in the last 5 years that they have done so.

The 2018-19 season kicked off with the the Blue Point Swiss Pairs event held at Windsor on Sunday 7th October in which 24 pairs competed.  The winning pair - winning the Denys Jenkins Cup - were Heather & Matthew Tan.  In joint 2nd place were Ilan Sirkis & Barry Read and David Owen & Bob Holder with Paula Hopkinson & Dick Davey in 4th place.  Well done all.


The Dimmie Fleming award is awarded to publicly recognise those people who do not hold an official office, but have, for a long time, worked hard for bridge in administration at County level.
The award to Nigel is in recognition of his Chairmanship of BBCBA (particularly during the P2P debate), Chair of Austenwood, work with the Student and Graduate Leagues, and with Minibridge in the schools.   Well done Nigel.    Well deserved.


The second B&B county Simultaneous Pairs event took place over four days from Monday 17 Sept to Thursday 20 Sept. Twenty five B&B clubs participated holding 29 sessions between them. In all, 570 pairs played.
The top daily scores and winners of the daily £50 prizes were :-  Monday - Colin Johns & Paul Dolphin (Lane End) with 68%; Tuesday - Clive Lewis & Hilda Hope (South Bucks ) with 68%; Wednesday - David Balderson & Keith Jones (Chalfont) with 69%; Thursday - Carol Olivier & Anne Todd (Tessa Templeton) with 67%.   Congratulations to them all.  Full results are available on the EBU website under "Sims".
This year we introduced commentary documents for the four nights which were prepared by four of the top county players and are available for download here. We hope this increased the enjoyment for everyone.    Commentary Booklets (click as required):   Monday   Tuesday   Wednesday   Thursday
We look forward to running the event again next year.


The Qualifying Round for the Tollemache Cup will be held over 17-18 November in Daventry.   Berks & Bucks have an excellent record in this event in recent years.    The B&B team will be Sally Brock & Barry Myers, John Howard & Tim Rees, Garry Jones & Ed Scerri, Ian Reissmann & Mike Perkins.    Good Luck.
