Welcome to the Nottinghamshire Contract Bridge Association web site. The Association was founded in 1937 and its aims are to promote and further bridge in Nottinghamshire, to organise competitions in the County and to participate in matches with other counties.
With great sadness we note the death of Nick Dyer on 6 January 2019.
Nick was a county first team player and member of Retford BC. Everyone who knew Nick recognised in him a top bridge player and a top human being.
A full obituary can be found on the Retford website.

Aimed at the developing bridge player, a Wednesday afternoon drive is being arranged, hosted by Graham Brindley at the Nottingham Bridge Club. You do not need to be an EBU or Club member, nor come as a pair. Support to help you make the transition from beginners lessons to joining a club.

The Premier League is a team of 4 Competition and replaced the Camrose Trials - the Winners of division one earn the right to represent England in the Camrose [the home countries international competition between England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland]. It has three divisions with promotion and relegation but only the winners of the top division play for England. In the first instance you apply to division three to be accepted as a team on the results you have had in National Competitions and then hope to be promoted eventually into the top division to give you a chance to represent your Country. Ankush's team finished third in division one and at one point were leading. However each pair like our County matches are butler imped and Ankush and his partner finished top in the butler imps doing better than all the pairs in the winning team. Very impressive.
