Welcome to the Bracknell Bridge League.


We have been running a teams-of-four Bridge league in the Bracknell, Wokingham, Crowthorne, Camberley and Yateley area for more than 50 years and currently have three divisions in the League as well as a knockout handicap/pivot competition. Since the start of the 21-22 season, we have been operating as a 'hybrid' league, where matches may be played either face-to-face or on-line, as agreed between opposing captains. New teams are welcome to join. Team members do not need to be EBU members or members of a local club to play in the league.  You do need a minimum of four players (preferably 5 or 6 to provide reserves), and a venue where you can host your face-to-face home matches. Entries for the 2023/24 season are now closed, but if you wish to register interest in entering a team in the 2024/25 season or just receive more information on the league then please contact info.bbl@bridgewebs.com.

The New Season

Thanks to all the clubs who were represented at the AGM, held on the 27th July. The meeting endorsed the Committee’s recommendation that the ‘default’ for the forthcoming season should remain on-line. However, in recognition that a few teams would welcome the opportunity to play more matches face-to-face, the League Rules have been updated to encourage teams to do so whenever possible. The change (Rule1.2) may be found here

The new season will start towards the end of September and club contacts have been requested to submit the details of their teams to the League by 11th August. In order to assist those clubs who also compete in County Leagues, a list of BBL playing weeks may be found here. Entries for the Pivot Cup need to be submitted by 17th August.
