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


The NCBA AGM is scheduled for 16th May. The committee needs new members particularly to implement recommendations from the Clubs Conference and particularly from clubs not currently represented. Please put your name forward by contacting Clare Batten.


  Winners of Winter Pairs 7 were  Steve Raine & Willie Crook with +65 from Stan Zydagio & Lloyd Eagling with +18 and Wendy Walker & Di Abbott with +10.

Leaders now are Steve & Willie with 13 points; Lloyd with 9 and Keith Rodgers with 7.

The scoring is 4 for first, 2 for second and 1 for third. Equal places share the points eg two pairs at 1st get 3 each.

Please note that the overall champion has to be an individual not a pair. That means that Lloyd is the current leader for the individual prize.

Leaders for the Farr Cup for similar pairs are Steve & Willie . Leading for the Black Cup for Mixed Pairs are the Aulds with 6.5 points.


Yet more success for Nottinghamshires Ankush Khandelwal who won the Grand Masters Pairs on 24th/25th February 2018. He partnered John Atthey and in the cross- imped event they finished with more than double the runners up score.
