NBL

Formed in 2006, the NBL is a teams-of-eight competition between the County Bridge Associations of Northern England and North Wales. The League is divided into three Divisions. The A Division is for teams consisting of players of the highest standard, the B Division is for regular County standard players, whilst the C Division is aimed at those who do not yet fall into the other categories.

There are four all-play-all events each year, held on Saturdays in the summer months. Events, which are usually of 42 boards, start at 12.30pm. A buffet meal is included, and most people are on their way home by early evening.

In 2017 Westmorland had two teams, one in the B division and one in the C division.

Please let the secretary know if you are interested in playing in the League.
