Top Clubs

Based on the EBU's statistics for 1st April 2015 to 31st March 2016 we now have 3 clubs amongst the 50 most active in the country. Special congratulations to Bernie Hunt for the "new entry", Mid Essex BC:-

Really Easy Afternoon - Saturday 28th May 2016

12 pairs took part in the Barleylands heat of the Really Easy Afternoon, and  Barbara Simia & Penny Hanson of Chelmsford Bridge Club won the Barleylands heat, and came 7 / 50 nationally, winning the prize for their stratum. Well done to them and the others who took part.

Mixed Teams of Four - 25th May 2016

Three teams dominated the session, stealing all the IMPs off the other six. After a closely-fought tussle, the team of Margaret Curtis & David Sherman, Peter Franklin & Frank Morrison emerged victorious. Well done!

SBU Overseas Congress - May 2016

Chris Taylor has been on his travels again, this time to Mlini Dubrovnik in Croatia. Partnering David Wing, his team won the Swiss Teams

SBU Overseas Congress - May 2016
Saxons - Spring 2016

The ECBA team (Saxons) play in the TGR Super-league Division 2 and had a good season - winning six matches, drawing one (a moral victory by 1 IMP) and losing only two. While this left them a comfortable third, of ten, it was not sufficient to earn one of the two promotion places, so they will play in the second division again next term. They were in contention until the last match, which they unfortunately lost 7-23.
