'DRAGON' NIGHTS AT SWANSEA

Looking for something to do on Saturday evenings?

Swansea Bridge Club now holds a 'Dragon' night on the 1st Saturday of the month at 7p.m. All are welcome - £4 with prizes.

 
Welcome to the West Wales Area web site
West Wales Bridge Association
West Wales Bridge Association

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.

Forthcoming Events

Now is the time to enter the revamped 2018/19 Welsh and Cambria Cups with Less Travelling, Fairer Green Point distribution, Regionalised Draws as far as possible and Double Elimination so no team is eliminated until it has played at least two matches in its region. 

Stanza Greens!  Every time your team wins an eight board stanza you will get 0.28 Green Points, or wins a ten board stanza you will get 0.35 Green Points, so you will usually get some Green Points even in matches that you lose. 

Regionalised Draws mean that the first two matches at least for South Wales teams will be from other teams in South Wales (or rarely Mid Wales).  Those long journeys to play teams from North Wales will be mainly eliminated. There will be finals day on 17th (Welsh) and 18th (Cambria) August 2019 to avoid too many rounds and long travels for later rounds.

Full details and an entry form will be found in the item in the menu called Welsh and Cambria Cups.

John Isaac and Ann Dolan Competitions
John Isaac and Ann Dolan Competitions

The West Wales AGM on Sunday 13th. May was followed by the John Isaac Pairs Competition, ably Directed by Jenny Vaughan.  Well done to worthy winners David and Norma Newman, ahead of Kevin Maddox and Tony Haworth, with  Irene Thomas and Jane Brook third, a clean sweep for members of the Bridgend club.  All was not lost for deepest West Wales however, as the Ann Dolan Competition, run as part of the John Isaac movement, was won by Annabel Greenhalgh and Jane Jeffs, two brave beginners from Peter Miliewski's class in Pembroke.  Well done to all of them, especially Annabel and Jane for entering the lions den of an area competition for the first time.
