Visitor to Cornwall?

As the most popular county in England in which to holiday, all our clubs are happy to welcome visiting bridge players for some mental stimulation after a relaxing day on the beach or walking the coastline! Again, contact the appropriate club secretary via the "Local Clubs" page so they know to expect you.

New to Bridge?
If you would like information on how and where to start learning to play bridge, of if you have played and would like an introduction to playing duplicate bridge at one of our clubs, click on Bridge Tuition (above) or contact the secretary in Cornish Bridge Clubs.
 
Entries for Next Event

For the scorer's and director's benefit - and also for players who can't quite remember if they have already entered the next event, or whether a particular player has entered the event with another partner - entries to the next event will now be posted on the website by the Entries Secretary for that particular event. Pairs should still contact the Entries Secretary as normal by email or phone having in mind the last date for entries.

Falmouth Arms, Ladock

IMPORTANT  :  PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS PUB OPPOSITE LADOCK VILLAGE HALL IS BEING REFURBISHED AND IS NOT TAKING BOOKINGS FOR SUNDAY LUNCH IN JANUARY/FEBRUARY(?).

Introduction
Introduction

There are currently 13 bridge clubs in Cornwall that are affiliated to the English Bridge Union (EBU). They meet on a variety of weekday evenings. 

Most county events are held on Sundays between September and April at Ladock village hall, just east of Truro. Postcode is TR2 4PG.

The County hosts one event open to all members of the EBU. In September, the three day Cornish Congress is held in the attractive seaside town of Bude on the extreme North coast of the county. The weekend includes two one-day green-pointed events and a Championship Pairs on the Friday.

Similarly, if you are a pair and would like team-mates to play in a teams event, Liz is also your contact.
