Lancashire has a bridge club in most of its major towns. Several clubs have a host system to ensure you can get a game. Contact details and club times are on the Clubs page though its sensible to check before attending a new club. Clubs with beginners and intermediate classes are also listed on the Clubs page. The website has details of forthcoming competitions and results. If your club is not affiliated you may become a direct member of the EBU. This entitles you to play in all Lancashire competitions, be eligible for Lancashire Teams, and attend all Lancashire Council Meetings

County Matches
Selection of Lancashire Teams

1.All players must be members of the EBU with first allegiance to Lancashire.
2.Teams to represent LCBA are selected annually for the Tollemache Cup, the President's Cup, and for matches in the Northern Bridge League and against Cumbria.
3 Teams will be picked by a Selection Committee, which will be elected at the December Council meeting.
4 Criteria employed in the selection of teams include established reputation; involvement and performance in national, LCBA and other regional events; and a desire to give a variety of deserving pairs the opportunity to represent the County. The Selection Committee maintains a database of pairs who have expressed an interest in representing the County. If you think you are not on the database and wish to be considered please contact the Chairman of Selectors.
5 A further requirement (laid down by Council) is that to qualify for Lancashire representative matches, players are normally to have demonstrated support for LCBA events over the recent 12-18 months.
6 Selection of the team to represent Lancashire in the Tollemache Cup will take particular account of the performance of pairs during the year in the Northern Bridge League A Division matches and in the President's Cup.
