2018 Eden Cup Winners
2018 Broke Cup Winners
Congratulations to the Miller Team for their win in the Broke Cup
On 30th June 2017 Stamford Bridge Academy hosted an Inter Schools Card Play day. Seventy-two young players from seven schools took part competing in either mini bridge, or else contract bridge, games. Teachers and assistants from the competing schools, and one or two observers from other schools helped, and even played at a table themselves. Thirty-four bridge club players have received “buddy” training and twenty-six are DBS Registered. Every table had one of these keeping the play going, and the scoring on track. “Fred”, the overall director, managed the award of numerous spot prizes and the collating of overall results. Leading pairs from each school received a small trophy and a new pack of cards. The top schools each received major trophies presented by Alan Shillitoe, manager of the England Under 26 squad. Members of Stamford Bridge Club provided fruit and water for the young players; coffee, tea and biscuits for the adults; and a sandwich lunch following the event. The players really enjoyed it, some have taught their parents the game! It’s an amazing achievement by the “buddies” who have created the chance for students to learn in sixteen schools (so far!) and for Liz Dale, Jenny Harding, Sandra Curran and Marlene Jones who have led the programme making this day possible.
If you would like to help introduce card games, and eventually, bridge into your child's or granchild's school, there is more information on the Stamford Bridge Club web site using the "Bridge Into Schools" tab on the left, or use the form here.
