Welcome to the home of Duplicate Bridge in Norfolk - registered charity no. 1171798
What a lovely thank you

Sometimes people who do all the organising for bridge events can feel under appreciated. So we were touched when we received this thank you e-mail after the Barclays Bank Trophy event at the beginning of December. The e-mail also contains great messages about why people should play bridge. So thank you to Thomas for taking the time to send this.

Norfolk Congress 2019

We are very excited to announce details of the 2019 Norfolk Congress
kindly sponsored by First for Bridge

A three day event from Friday 15th to Sunday 17th March
Attend the whole weekend or just one or two events.

The programme has been changed this year to make it more inclusive for club players of all levels. The Pairs competition on the Saturday will be Swiss Pairs stratified according to players' NGS grades. There will be prizes and trophies in each of three categories which means that less experienced players have a chance of winning a prize and/or trophy and gaining some prestigious English Bridge Union green points.

We hope to see some new faces as well as welcoming our regular players.

We have reserved rooms at very competitive rates (from £64 per room) at the Wensum Valley Hotel where the event is being held. The hotel is set in 350 acres of countryside just outside Norwich and includes two 18 hole golf courses, a leisure centre and plentiful free parking.
