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.
 
32nd Open Cornwall Bridge Congress

The Congress will again be held at the delightful Falcon Hotel in Bude, North Cornwall with the same team of directors as last year. Entry forms have been mailed to last year's attendees, and they will also soon be distributed throughout the county. They can also be downloaded from this website. This year Rob Mabley (01208 814564) will be taking entries.

Remember the Falcon Hotel only has 29 rooms, so if you want to stay on-site for the Congress, it is important that you book in good time directly with the hotel. Quote "Bridge Congress" at reception to ensure you get the Congress rates.

Entries to date : Championship Pairs (Friday) : 8  Swiss Pairs (Saturday) : 9  Swiss Teams (Sunday) : 6

Club Teams of Eight Sunday 26 March

Don't forget the clocks go forward one hour during Saturday night, so please remind all your team members (there is a 3 IMP penalty for each unplayed board due to late arrival).

Can I also remind Club Treasurers to bring along the entry fee of £50.00 per team (£25.00 for a second team) either as cash or by cheque, payable to "Cornwall CBA".

Partner Finding Service

To encourage players to enter county events, we are introducing a partner finding service from the beginning of 2017. If you are available to play in a pairs competition and would like a partner, please contact our Vice Chairperson, Liz Perry, who has kindly agreed to be the point of contact. Similarly, if you are a pair and would like team-mates to play in a teams event, Liz is also your contact. Liz' phone number is 01872 276623.  NB Entries are still to the person named in your county handbook or quoted on this website, not to Liz.

Second Cornwall Charity Simultaneous Pairs

will be held at all clubs wishing to participate on TUESDAY 20 JUNE 2017. Last year this included Bude, Godolphin, Liskeard, St. Austell and Wadebridge. This year money raised will be for Cornwall Air Ambulance. I will be contacting club secretaries in the near future to ascertain whether they wish to hold a heat this year.

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.
