2019 News
Whoo Hoo the Ashes return home in 2019!
Whoo Hoo the Ashes return home in 2019!

2019 sees the Ashes return home to Bendigo once more.  Our heroes, Sue Napier and Margaret Smart can't contain the smiles at their triumph.

Ballarat were wonderful hosts as usual and were very galant in defeat,  The Ashes has this traditional rivalry, but the day is all about meeting our long time friends at Ballarat and enjoying the day.

This tradition goes back to the 1990's and is a highlight of our calendar each March.

Put March in your calendar as a day not to be missed each year if you have not experienced this day of fun and fellowship across the bridge table.

Another successful year for our club, celebrated at the Schweppes Centre
