We have received an invitation from Derbyshire for pairs to compete in the Mixed Pairs Championship for the East Midlands Bridge Academy Plate. This competition is specifically for mixed pairs from all over the region and incorporates the Flitch Cup for married couples, a Midland League event. The competition will take place at 2.00pm on Sunday 3rd May at The East Midlands Bridge Academy, The Old School, Chapel St., Spondon, Derby DE21 7JR.

The Committee are looking for a new Editor for Worcestershire Bridge News. If anyone is interested in do this then they should talk to Mike Willoughby, the current editor, or another Committee Member.

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.
