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 October 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.
Another successful and hugely enjoyable Congress was held for the fourth consecutive year at the Falcon Hotel in Bude on 14-16 September. The event was dominated by very strong players from Devon and beyond - Thompson, M Walsh, Solomon, Lawy, Lindfors, I Walsh, King, Tomlinson, Crack, Goldwin. Success for Cornish players was limited to Ian Marriott & Norna Hughes finishing runners-up in the Collings Cup on Friday evening; to Celia Bishop & Viv Mably (now Devon) finishing 5th in the Tregudda Cup; and to Geoff Smith & Chris Bickerdike finishing 2nd in Sunday's Betty O'Neill Trophy teams event.
