Welcome to County Bridge Club (CBC)
Garry Duddle

I am sorry to report that Gary died on Monday, 20th March.  The funeral will be at Gilroes on Friday 31st March at 10am.

Gary worked at the Brush Group in Loughborough for many years until he took early retirement for health reasons.  In the early 1980s he was one of the founder members of the Clarendon team along with current members Sue and Paul Bowyer, Jim Mason and Simon Stokes. In those days, League rules dictated that new teams had to enter in the lowest division, so division 7 was their starting point.  Over the years, Gary won several competitions at the County bridge club, winning the Staines Trophy with Marjorie Gilbertson for three consecutive years and the Hammersley Cup three times between 2010 and 2014 with team mates Irene Krantz, Simon Stokes and Yasser Haider.  In LCBA competitions, he won the Hyman Crammer Memorial Trophy twice, partnered by Sue Bowyer on the first occasion, and by Simon Stokes on the second.  He won the Otto and Edith Bowl, twice, partnered by Irene Krantz.  Gary also played regularly in the Midlands County league partnered by David Green.  He was always affable and welcoming to everyone he met at the bridge table. Gary would be the first to say that much of his bidding relied on flair rather than lengthy bidding sequences – the Hurricane Higgins of the Leicestershire bridge scene.


He leaves his wife Margaret, daughter Sarah, son Keith and many friends in the Leicestershire bridge community.

Children in Need 2016 - Message from Ecats

After a frantic week of CiN sims, and a (thankfully) relaxed weekend, I am now getting round to doing more than just uploading the sums raised to the website and actually thanking the clubs for raising so much lovely money ! Have you seen that we are already up to over £47,000 ? and this is all thanks to the generosity of bridge players 

And the ones from your club are among them. Please please pass our thanks onto them won’t you ? We really appreciate them coming along and supporting the event and raising funds for Children in Need! And thanks to you – or whoever was responsible - for organising things as well – I hope your club appreciates the effort that went into it as much as we do J £400 is a wonderful amount to have raised .. amazing thank you so sosososososososososo much !

With best wishes

Anna & Mark

The ECatsBridge Team

Saturday Evenings

We continue to run our Saturday evening duplicate bridge session.  This session is best suited to those players who want a low key, friendly evening.  If you are not sure if duplicate is for you, come along with your partner and try it.
