Eileen Webster Shield


The Eileen Webster Shield is a club trophy awarded annually to the winning pair in a one day duplicate pairs competition to be held this year on: 


Saturday 29th February 2020


This is the club's only single event trophy (all our other trophies are for performances over the year) and traditionally is a friendly, light-hearted event.


Play starts at 11am and ends around 5-5.30 pm with a break for a buffet lunch.


You are welcome to bring your own wine.


Anyone who wishes to play please book in advance by putting their name on the list on the club notice-board to assist with planning.


Entry is restricted to club members.


EBU Blue Masterpoints will be awarded.


The cost is just £6 for a very enjoyable day out with lots of bridge and food.

Sunday Afternoon Duplicate

Sunday afternoon bridge resumed at the beginning of January.  Sessions from 2pm to 5pm every Sunday costing £3 for members and £4 for visitors.

This is less competitive than our evening duplicates with more of a social atmosphere.

We see this as a stepping stone for those members who play in our Thursday morning duplicate and who would like a second game, playing more boards.

Of course, everyone is welcome but we want our experienced players to remember that there will be players of mixed abilities and that it is to be a relaxed informal session.

The host system will stop at the end of February so if you need a partner pick up a phonelist and/or speak to Gill.


Learning to play Bridge

Come and learn to play bridge at 

Blundellsands Bridge Club, Telegraph House, Crosby

Everyone can learn to play bridge regardless of their age or experience with card games.  You don't have to be clever and you don't need to devote enormous amounts of time to learning - although you might want to as it can be quite addictive!

We are currently running a series of classes at 1:30 on Wednesday afternoons in our comfortable clubroom in the centre of Crosby Village.  We have tutors who are accredited by the English Bridge Union (EBU) and are following a structured programme with a detailed manual provided by the EBU.  Although the course started back in October we might still be able to accommodate new learners.  If you are interested please contact us:

Please contact Ann Brewer on 0151 949 1329 or 07775 821940

Magazines and Diary

EBU Diary

EBU Diary


Members who have accumulated the necessary entitlement should automatically receive the August 2019 edition of English Bridge together with the 2020 diary.  To reduce costs and wastage the EBU have announced that henceforth they intend to withdraw the automatic issue of these diaries.  Members are advised that from 2020 if they wish to receive a diary they will need to positively opt in.  To do this members will need to login to their My EBU account and check the appropriate tick box, even if they were previously marked to receive it.  The club can assist members with doing this providing that the member has given the club permissions to update their details.  Talk to Gareth if you need any help.
