2018 Junior Camps
2018 Junior Camps

The Wessex Weekend in Cheltenham was held on 7th/8th April 2018 and was fully booked with 70 children attending. The England U21 squad used it as a training session, and at a joint session where 40 Cheltenham BC members played with 40 children, the young guns came out top.

The junior event at Ardingly in Sussex on 7th/8th July 2018 was a great success, being fully booked for boarders well in advance.

The event at the Portland Club on June 17th attracted 10 tables of bridge players, mainly from the London area. It was a fantastic venue to visit, rejoicing in the address of '36, Pall Mall', and was run by Simon Stocken on behalf of the Davenport Trust. Let's increase the number attending next year.

The Junior Teach-In at Phasels Wood in Hertfordshire ran a great bridge programme at the beginning of September, but also allowed the children to choose two very physical activities from Zip-wire, Go-Karting, Abseiling, human table football (a vicious game!) and others
