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.
The final of this year's knockout was played on 20 April over 40 boards, the winners being Rob Mabley (Alan Biggs, Mike Booth, Celia Bishop) who beat Carol Bray (Jennifer Congdon, Pat Joseph, Jenny Northmore) by 43 IMPs. The winners now qualify to represent Cornwall in the Pachabo Cup in Bedford on 9-10 June.
This will be held on Tuesday 19 June 2018 and five clubs have now confirmed that they will be running a heat - Bude, Helston, Liskeard, St. Austell and Wadebridge. All the clubs are extending a hearty welcome to non-members, so if you would like to play in a heat, and you are not a member of that club, just ring their club secretary to let them know you would like to play.
The beneficiary this year will be the National Coastwatch Institution (NCI) a registered charity made up of voluntary persons who keep a visual watch in Cornwall at 13 stations along our coastline. The monies raised will be divided equally among these 13 stations.
