Bridge Warehouse
Bridge Warehouse

The EBU's shop has undergone a rebranding and is now called the Bridge Warehouse.
This is one of a number of changes which have been made as part of ongoing efforts to increase the shop's revenue, and thus provide more profit for reinvestment by the EBU in providing activities and services for members, clubs and counties.

Malcolm and Angie Sollofe and Mike and Tricia Allsopp took an early lead after the first round. There are six rounds altogether.

The eventual winners and one other pair will be invited to represent Blaby in the LCBA Hyman Crammer competition on 9th May 2018 at Rothley.

Children in Need Simultaneous Pairs
Children in Need Simultaneous Pairs

Blaby is once again running a heat of the Children in Need Simultaneous Pairs competition. This is a national competition held over 5 days. Our heat will be held on Tuesday 14th November. All are welcome to support this very worthwhile charity.

Otto and Edith Bowl

The first LCBA competition of the new season, the Otto and Edith Bowl, attracted 20 pairs, including four Blaby pairs. This is a mixed pairs competition with the top two married couples being invited to represent Leicestershire in the final of the Midlands Flitch.

The highest placed Blaby pair were John and Doreen Arnold who came fifth. Cynthia James, playing with Steven Ashley, was also above par coming 10th. Well done to them.

You can see all the results and how the other Blaby pairs fared here.

Blaby continues with its very successful weekends away in 2018 with our third visit to the Warwick Hilton. Follow this link for full details.

 

The Club
The Club

The Club was founded in 1947 by Nora and Harold Toon. Both were keen bowls players so the Bridge Club has always used Blaby Bowling Club as its premises apart from the summer months when bowls takes precedence.
We play every Tuesday starting at 7:15pm prompt. Visitors are always welcome when partnering a member. A pair of visitors are also welcomed. Please contact us if you intend to play.
For directions to the Club look under Information in the menu on the left.
