Latest News

Due to the AGM not being quorate a Special General Meeting is being held on the 19th of June prior to the heat of the Phillipps Pairs that evening. This should be a short meeting dealing with a few formal aspects which could not be done at the AGM. (SGM Notice)

In the final County Match of the season against Leicestershire the 1st Team won 12-8, the 2nd Team lost 3-17 & the 3rd Team lost 6-14.

The Garden Cities Qualifier has been won by Droitwich Bridge Club, who win the Ron Allen Trophy.

After the sad loss of Roger Bowles last year his widow donated Roger's extensive collection of bridge books to Worcester Bridge Club. It was agreed that the books should be made available to all County Members and  the list of books can be seen at Roger Bowles Bridge Library .

The WCBA Committee has been giving considerable thought to the feasibility of acquiring bridge premises for the use of Worcestershire bridge players that would be available 7 days a week, with the ability to cater for the growing demand for daytime bridge. It is envisaged that the premises will support at least a 20 table session with room for matches, teaching and storage with a basic level of catering. The planned venue will include adequate facilities for parking, toilets, heating etc. A few documents are available in the Members Only area of the website, one asking for feedback and one being a feasibility review. To access the Members Only area of the website for the first time you will need the Membership Registration Code which you can get from Paul Hammond or other Committee Members.
