2022 - 2023 BROWN CUP

Entries are invited for the 2022-23 Brown Cup, the B&BCBA League for Teams of Four. There are likely to be four divisions so you will be able to play at a level that suits your experience. Each team will play five or six matches.

Subject to the agreement of both captains, matches can be played face-face. Such matches are normally played in the home of one of the players. In the last two seasons Realbridge and BBO have been the two platforms chosen for on-line matches. Matches can be played on Realbridge with the agreement of both captains. Otherwise, matches will be played on BBO.

If you are interested, please email Bob Dowdeswell, the League Secretary, by Sunday 31 July 2022 at the latest, at bobdowdeswell@virginmedia.com or ring 01189 479585. Email is preferred.
