Welcome to the website of the Western Region of the Contract Bridge Association of Ireland.
The CBAI is the national body that administers the game of contract bridge across the 26 counties of Ireland.
This national association is made up of various regional branches including the Western Region which administers the game in County Galway.
Each region is run by a committee comprised of representatives of the affiliated clubs. The region's officers (President, Secretary, Treasurer, etc,) are elected at the AGM which is traditionally held in December. The position of President rotates equally between the various clubs of the region.
At present, there are 32 clubs affiliated to the Western Region. Click the following link to view a list of clubs currently affiliated to the Western Region: Clubs affiliated with Western Region CBAI.
The Western Region organises regional events (Regional Pairs, Regional Mixed Pairs, Regional T/4) which facilitate qualification to the relevant National Events organised by the CBAI. See the Western Region Calendar for the schedule of regional events. Note that Regional events are highlighted in red whereas National events are listed in green and charity events in purple.
