Welcome to Bridge Great Britain
Welcome to Bridge Great Britain

Bridge Great Britain was formed following the devolution of the British Bridge League into its individual unions at the end of 1999. At that time, the English, Scottish and Welsh Bridge Unions won the right to have teams representing them in European and World events, instead of playing as Great Britain. However, should bridge ever be represented in the Olympic Arena, it will be necessary for the countries to join together again and participate as Great Britain, since this is the body recognised by the International Olympic Committee.

How BBL became BGB


In addition to the need to have the infrastructure to select a representative team in this eventuality, there are two events which remain British rather than belonging to any one Union, notably the Gold Cup, which is the British Knock Out Teams of Four Championship and The Home International Series,comprising the Camrose, Lady Milne, Teltscher Trophy (Senior Camrose), Junior Camrose (U26) and Peggy Bayer (U21's).

 How Wales won the Lady Milne for the first time in 1967


Bridge Great Britain is run by a Committee - there is a Core Committee comprising three members, one from each of England, Scotland and Wales, and the full Committee, which meets annually, where the Core Committee members are joined by delegates from Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. 

 


The British Simultaneous Pairs are administered by the EBU on behalf of England, Wales and Scotland.
