Welcome to Nottinghamshire Contract Bridge Association
Notts CBA
Notts CBA

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.

Wednesday Afternoons

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. 

Just turn up! 14:00


Afternoon Bridge

Daytime Duplicate at Nottingham Bridge Club to include a buffet lunch.

Nottingham Bridge Club together with NCBA are running a daytime bridge session once a month

This social duplicate event is an exciting new venture following feedback requesting daytime bridge:

Please give it your support.

The cost is £6.00 to include a buffet lunch.
(£7 for non members)

The bridge will start at 12.45 and finish 4.00pm to avoid the rush hour.

We will have a host so you can play without a partner.

 Please email or sign up on the NBC noticeboard beforehand (to give the caterer some idea of the numbers coming).

contact NCBA secretary Clare Batten at

Next session will be on  13 December  12 noon.

Premier League 2018

Ankush Khandelwal and Ben green were members of the team that finished third in division 1.
They were clear leaders in the cross imps ahead of the EBUs top international pairs.

Results on EBU site

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.
