Play for East Wales in the Tollemache 2018/19

Pairs who would like to be selected to represent East Wales should send their names to The EWBA Secretary, adriantrickey1@gmail.com by 31st August 2018. The Qualifying Round of the Tollemeache will be played on 17th and 18th November 2018. The venue, which will be in England, has not yet been decided by the EBU. The Tollemache is a competition between teams of eight. Teams represent the various English County Bridge Associations; East Wales is invited to send a team each year. The standard is as high as any domestic event in the UK. EWBA will select five pairs to comprise the team for the Qualifying Round. Applicants should feel free to remind the selectors of their recent achievements as a pair in both teams and pairs competitions. Do not expect the selectors to be aware of all recent triumphs. Tell them!

EWBA League 2017 - 2018

Congratulations to the Bridge Endplayers who will return to the top 
fight next year as champions of Division 2, following their 100% winning 
season.

The aim of the East Wales League is to provide friendly and competitive bridge in a team-of -four league format and we need more teams.
Each team has to play approx 6-8 matches over the winter at roughly one per month.

Cost is just £16 per team for the entire season and the team can contain as many players as you wish.
The league has 3 divisions which can cater for all levels of ability.

Players do not have to be members of the same club or even members of the WBU or EWBA.
If you wish to enter a new team or just need more information, please speak to Steve Webb

Western England Congresses

Please show your support to the following congresses

West of England Congress -  28th - 30th September 2018

Teams of 8 Final Results

WBU Teams of 8, 2018 winners were Llanfairfechan BC. Cardiff came third, Penarth/Cardiff fourth and Gwent eighth. Click on the title above to link to the full results.

New Welsh and Cambria Cup

There will be a new improved Welsh Cup starting in October 2018 with Less Travelling, Fairer Green Point distribution, Regionalised Draws as far as possible and Double Elimination so no team is eliminated until it has played at least two matches in its region. 

Stanza Greens!  Every time your team wins an eight board stanza you will get 0.28 Green Points, so you will usually get some Green Points even in matches that you lose. 

Regionalised Draws mean that the first two matches at least for North Wales teams will be from other teams in North Wales (or rarely Mid Wales).  Those long journeys to play teams from South Wales will only happen late into the competition.
