Welcome to SBU Highland District

Welcome to the website of the Highland District of the Scottish Bridge Union

Here you will find information for SBU members in the District, and visitors to the Highlands will be able to locate and contact affiliated clubs which would be more than happy to welcome them for a game of bridge.

SBU National Pairs

This year the format of this event has reverted to start with club heats (in a restricted number of clubs) followed by a District final.

Any Highland District pair is welcome to attend a heat at any participating club, though it would be appreciated if they contacted the chosen club before turning up.

Heats are being held at Ness (October 30th),  Speymouth (November 23rd), Grantown (November 27th) and Dingwall (January 9th).  Contact details may be found on clubs' websites.

The District final will be in the British Legion, Nairn, on January 21st.

Full details of entry fees, how to pay, how to submit scores etc can be found by clicking on this link.

In the event of any queries please contact the District convener, John Wilson
