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.

Are you Missing Out?

Bored with the summer holidays already? Finished reading the WBU newsletter? Relax...... help is at hand. Did you know that as part of the WBU efforts to improve communications you can receive regular letters from Paddy Murphy, our president. Just provide an email address and you will receive regular light reading throughout the year free of charge. (This link will take you to the contact us form on the WBU main site.)

If you haven't already signed up you might have missed the invitation for entries to this year"s Welsh and Cambria Cups for teams of 4-6. A great opportunity to meet and play bridge with those outside your usual circle in a setting chosen by you. Closing date is 15th September so there's still plenty of time to get organised, download  forms from the competition handbook on the WBU website and put your entry in. The more the entries, the better the competition works.

The closing date for entries is today 19th September.

NEW CHAIRMAN FOR THE WWBA
NEW CHAIRMAN FOR THE WWBA

Bob Alderdice, who has been Chairman of the WWBA for the last five years, and who was Treasurer for three years before that, handed over the Chair to Gareth Jones at the AGM of the WWBA on 8th May. Bob has been an enthusiastic and innovative Chairman during his time of office.  The Teams League and the Celtic Congress have been two of his  most notable achievements and he has been a real inspiration to the Area. In Gareth we will have an able successor and we wish him all the best in his new post.
