I would like to introduce myself. As you may be aware earlier this year I joined English Bridge Education & Development (EBED) as its Chief Executive Officer. 

I'd like to take this opportunity to give you an update on achievements of the charity in recent months. We have been busy both with  'day to day' activities as well as special projects, such as; the launch of Fast Track Bridge, revision and updating of Practice Play books, review of policy and guidance for youth bridge, revision of teacher training course and revision of Club Director training courses. More details on all these projects can be found below.

Please also remember that EBED exists to promote bridge to anyone regardless of EBU membership – so we always appreciate your help in passing on information about our activities to non affiliated bridge clubs and teaching groups in your area. Regular updates on EBED projects will continue to appear on our page in English Bridge and of course our website
