Bridge Teaching Courses in Devizes
Chaz and Lucy Cross will shortly be starting Bridge Teaching Courses in Devizes.
 
On Thursday evenings, starting 5th July, they will be running an EBU Bridge for All Fast Track course.  This is an intensive and condensed evening course to learn bridge for those who have experience of playing cards or who have played bridge in the past and want to start playing again. 
 
In September, they will be running an EBU Bridge for All Beginners course.  This will be for absolute beginners and will be a more relaxed introduction to bridge.  It is a 30 week course run over three terms.
 
We would be grateful if you could kindly pass information about these courses on to anyone you know who may be interested.
 
The courses will be held in Devizes (Location to be advised).

An online entry form is now available for teams wishing to play in 2018/19 WCBA Leagues. 

Entries for the county league teams are now open and the closing date is 1st July. There is one entry form for all leagues below.  We welcome entries from all county players old and new,  with League 3 being designed for the less experienced players forming new teams, and League 2 the entry route for more experienced players entering for the first time.  Teams in all leagues can now have up to eight players, with any four playing on one night.  If you are not sure of the complete team membership, please can you enter the captain’s name and as many team members that you can.  There is a column for you to show your preference for the league you would prefer to play in – this is not guaranteed but would help the committee if there is any flexibility after following the normal promotion/relegation rules.

Click here or on 'Leagues 2018/19' on the Menu on the left for the entry form.

Please note the deadline for entries is 01 July 2018.
