PAYMENTS BY CHEQUE

We are phasing out the acceptance of cheques as payment of table money at Berks & Bucks events. At county events, table money will be cash only - cheques will not be accepted.  Cheques will continue to be accepted at the Green Point events.

Welcome to Berks & Bucks CBA
BRIDGE IN SCHOOLS

Berks and Bucks CBA is very proud to promote bridge in schools.  We would like to take the opportunity to thank Nigel,Tony and all the other volunteers who go into the local schools to promote and teach children the wonderful game of bridge.  The EBU have recently put an article on their website including a letter addressed to Nigel and Tony from one of the local schools. It is very rewarding to hear from the children how much they enjoyed learning bridge and how they hope to keep it up when they leave school.

ENTRY FEES

The entry fee for all events (excluding the Green Pointed weekend) is £5. Juniors (under 25 years old on the day) are free!  Fees are collected at the table on the day of the competition and are payable only in cash (cheques are not accepted).

PLASTIC WASTE

B&B are keen to reduce the amount of plastic waste which result from the catering at events held at Windsor.   Firstly, we will phase out the use of plastic spoons and change to wooden stirrers.    Secondly, whilst it is not practical for B&B to totally change to using china or other re-useable cups, players are encouraged to bring their own cups if they wish to.

If you have entered an event and later find that you are unable to play or need to change your entry, please notify us as soon as possible by using the applicable online Entry Form again with an appropriate comment added.​  If you have to withdraw on the day, or are delayed in arriving, please phone the B&B Host on 07401 079752.  N.B. This is a recently changed number.    All players are asked to be seated 10 minutes before the scheduled start time of any event. These measures will help the Director plan the movement and achieve a prompt start.
