Junior Bridge Camps

There are normally three Junior Bridge Camps held each academic year:

  • The Autumn Junior Bridge camp - Was held in October 2023 at Tunbridge Wells Bridge Club
  • The Spring Junior Bridge camp - Will be held over 23rd to 24th March 2024 Cheltenham Bridge Club
  • The Summer Junior Bridge Camp (JTI) will be held over 30th August to 1st September in Northampton 

The results from the Junior Bridge Camps are highlighted in orange in the results calendar.

Autumn Junior Bridge Camp

The Autumn Junior Bridge Camp is a residential weekend for bridge players from about 8 to 17.  It is normally held in East Sussex in October.

Much bridge is taught and played, but there is also time for other activities (Rock Climbing, Archery, Bushcraft, etc.)

The camp is organised by Sussex County Contract Bridge Association with support from Kent and Surrey CBAs

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
