CORNWALL CONGRESS 2015

It is now confirmed that in 2015 the three-day Cornwall Congress will move from Spring to Autumn - 18/20 September 2015 - and will contain two green-pointed events: a Swiss Pairs hopefully on Friday evening and Saturday (three sessions yet to be confirmed) and the usual Swiss Teams on Sunday.

The venue will remain the Falmouth Hotel, but this year, with the construction of a new connecting corridor, bridge will take place in the two Terrace Rooms in addition to the Ballroom. Total capacity will therefore increase to about 45 tables, with the number of tables in the Ballroom being reduced to 22, thereby alleviating the overcrowding of the last two years.

The organisers are very excited about these changes, which we hope, together with the opportunity to win more green points, will attract more players to the event.

The details of the weekend are still being put together, so the Prospectus/Entry Forms will not be available till the New Year. Anyone wishing to express an early interest in the Congress can contact Chris Bickerdike (01326 572430 or chris.bickerdike@tesco.net). 

 

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 Cornish Bridge Clubs page so they know to expect you.

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.

The County hosts two events open to all members of the EBU. In Spring, the three day Cornish Congress (Sunday's Swiss Teams is a Green Point event) is held in the attractive maritime town of Falmouth, and in late September, a one day Green Point Swiss Teams event is held, for the first time in 2013, in Launceston in East Cornwall.
