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.

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.
