As the most popular county in England in which to holiday, all our clubs are happy to welcome visiting bridge players for some mental stimulation after a relaxing day on the beach or walking the coastline! Again, contact the appropriate club secretary via the "Local Clubs" page so they know to expect you.

On 16 June, Liskeard BC organised a very successful Swiss Teams event with a total of 19 teams entering from all over Cornwall, and from Plymouth and Exeter. The day included a good lunch and tea/coffee throughout the day. Six seven board matches were played and the winners with 90 VPs were the Exeter team of Richard Lingham (Ann Slee, Viv Mabley and Ruth Nelmes). Runners-up on 78 VPs were Mike Booth (Celia Bishop, Rob Mabley and Geoff Fogg). A big thanks to John Lankshear, Steve Parsons, Gillian Swann and everyone else who played a part in a brilliantly organised day.
There are currently 13 bridge clubs in Cornwall that are affiliated to the English Bridge Union (EBU). They meet on a variety of weekday evenings.
Most county events are held on Sundays between October and April at Ladock village hall, just east of Truro. Postcode is TR2 4PG.
