Welcome to the West Wales Area web site
OPEN SWISS PAIRS JANUARY 14TH. TUMBLE

Apology

We are very sorry that difficulties with the scoring system led to an early end to the Swiss Pairs and the frustration of having to wait for a long time while efforts were made to sort the problem. After much effort we did finally get a result of the five rounds played (see 'results')

Congratulations to Vida Halford and Glyn Williams who won the Area Mixed Pairs Championship on Sunday 19th. November.  Runners up were Sarah and Mat Greener, with Emer Disley and Tony Haworth in third place.  Very well done to all of them.

If you are visiting or moving to West Wales - our beautiful land of coast and castles - we would love to welcome you to join us for a game of Bridge.  There is a wide range of clubs meeting at least once a week in venues from just south of Bridgend up to Dinas in northern Pembrokeshire and down to Tenby in the south.  Some of the sessions are more competitive, some more socially orientated, but all will guarantee you a very warm welcome!

If you would like any guidance please email our Secretary or call on 01239 891501.

TEAMS LEAGUE 2017-2018

Porthcawl Congress 1/2/3 December

The Congress was a great success in 2017, the Swiss Pairs being at capacity on the Saturday and the Swiss Teams only one short of being full on the Sunday.  Additionally, the quality of the field was especially high, so that the winners certainly deserve hearty congratulations.  Thanks to the directorial team and, of course, special thanks to the organisers, Irene Thomas and Jenny Vaughan.  Given the popularlity of this event, it would probably be adviseable to book your place early next year.  Some of the happy winners are pictured below.
