EWBA League

EWBA League 2018 - 2019

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
