Latest News from FRANCE
Club Stéphanois

A few days after the tournament ended, I visited the local club's premises where I was able to personally thank them for their organisation. I was told that, for the 2024 edition of the Tournoi de Roussillon end September, the number of tables will be limited to 80 = 320 players. You therefore need to book your place well in advance if you want to join the party. 

What a great day that was!

Club Stéphanois

Félicitations à Régine, Jean Marc, Patrick et Michel du Club Stéphanois pour avoir organisé un si bel événement.

Une chance pour moi de retrouver mes amis français de l'époque où j'enseignais le bridge dans les écoles françaises. 15 ans après le début de ce projet, il existe un nombre incroyable de 560 clubs de bridge enregistrés dans les écoles en France.

Le superbe dîner dansant m'a donné l'occasion de discuter avec Luc, le directeur du tournoi,  comment atteindre en Espagne le succès que nous avons tous deux connu : Luc était entraineur de l'équipe française des moins de 13 ans en même temps que moi. j'étais le coach de l'équipe thaïlandaise des moins de 13 ans!

At the end of the Thai National under 16 championships, the winners invited some of my (slightly shorter) youngsters competing in the same event to join them for the photo call.

Chang Rai was where the 12 cave boys and their teacher were dramatically rescued in 2018. Some of those boys trapped underground for a week in a flooded cave were bridge players!   


Felicitaciones a Sofía y Carmen.

More than two months ahead of schedule


is being officially launched today


at a Danish dinner party in Carvajal this evening 


03h00 17/3/19





Four of my many great friends on the Costa del Sol. are Rita and Gerry from the Republic of Ireland and Helen and Paul from Northern Ireland. Paul`s CV shows that he represents his country at bridge. So Northern Ireland have the best bridge pair

ONE-NIL  to Northern Ireland

but the other pair from south of the backstop have the best paddler. 


Hold on a minute. I`ve just realised that Gerry and Rita know those two statements are 1001% true whereas Helen and Paul might not.

(Because they don`t realise Padel is a a popular racket sport in Spain) 

latest score: 2-1 to the Republic of Ireland

Whether Northern Ireland score an equaliser or an own goal depends on what Helen and Paul say in their testimonial match


Breaking News

Latest score still 2-1 to the Republic


Viewers will be pleased to know that I am asking Paul to send me his testimonial to see whether they can trump the paddler`s achievement to score an equaliser. I intend to reveal the final score mid July. Because I am fleeing the mainland and heading for an island in the Atlantic Ocean the following day. 

As it happens, that is all true as well. For your information I am leaving on 2/4 and I will be appearing at the Bernabeu stadium on 26 April. Ask Kevin Keegan if you don`t believe me.
