Cornwall Congress 2016
  • Winners Betty O\'Neill Trophy
  • Winners Collings Cup
  • Winners Fistral Cup
  • Winners Tregudda Trophy

The 32nd annual Congress was held for the second time at the excellent Falcon Hotel in Bude. Over 140 people played at some time over the weekend, and, thanks to the brilliance of the directing and scoring team of Robin Barker, Don Pearson, and Jim Barker all went very smoothly.

All the bridge honours went to out of county players :

The Championship Pairs (Tregudda Trophy) was won by Clare Hamon & Barry Smale (Devon)

The Consolation Pairs (Collings Cup) was won by Jean Harrison & Betty Golding (Devon)

The Swiss Pairs (Fistral Cup) was won by Colin & Lavinia Thomas (Swansea)

The Swiss Teams (Betty O'Neill Trophy) was retained by Miles Cowling, Stefan Lindfors, Bob McRobert & Rob Lawy (Hants, Devon & Avon) 

Best performances by Cornish players were : Peter Scott & Bob Pretty finishing third in the Championship Final; Stephen Crouch & Margaret Buckingham finishing fourth equal in the Championship Final; Brian & Elaine Relton finishing 4th out of 35 in the Qualifier; Heather Upton & Sandra Bickerdike finishing second in the Consolation Final.

The Congress will be staying at the Falcon in 2017, two weeks later than this year, on 22-24 September.

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.
