Visitor to Cornwall?

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.

New to bridge?

 

If you would like information on how and where to start learning to play bridge, of if you have played and would like an introduction to playing duplicate bridge at one of our clubs, click on Bridge Tuition (above) or contact the secretary in Cornish Bridge Clubs.

 

Welcome to Cornwall Contract Bridge Association
ONLINE BRIDGE IN CORNWALL

 

St. Austell (Tuesday 1.30pm), Helston (Tuesday 6.30pm) and Falmouth (Thursday 6.30pm) are now running virtual clubs through the Bridge Base Online platform. All three clubs welcome non-members to play, but remember to give your BBO username and EBU number to the club the first time you play well before bridge startsIn Devon, Exeter, Plymouth and Torquay BCs all welcome players from Cornwall to play at their online BBO club.

St. Ives (Thursday 6.45pm) and Wadebridge (Tuesday 7.15pm) now have online clubs running using the Bridge Club Live platform.

The friendly match against Devon, scheduled for Saturday 5 December, has been cancelled.

EXETER BC ARE NOW RUNNING A 3.00PM FRIDAY AFTERNOON SESSION ON REALBRIDGE. ON THIS NEW PLATFORM PLAYERS CAN SEE AND HEAR EACH OTHER. THIS MAKES THE BRIDGE MUCH MORE LIKE F2F BRIDGE. IT IS RAPIDLY GAINING POPULARITY AND MANY CONGRESSES AND NATIONAL EVENTS ARE NOW BEING RUN ON REALBRIDGE. NEXT YEAR WESTERN LEAGUE COUNTY MATCHES ARE LIKELY TO BE PLAYED ON REALBRIDGE, SO IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT ASPIRING PLAYERS SHOULD GET SOME EXPERIENCE ON THIS PLATFORM.

 

ANNUAL ACCOUNTS

The annual accounts covering the period 1/7/2019 to 25/8/2020 have been prepared and audited. Despite £641.00 being spent on servicing/repairs to the duplimating machine, a surplus of £389.00 on the year is recorded, with a bank balance of £5975.00 going forward. The surplus is due to the effects of Covid-19 which truncated the season from March onwards - a time when the county normally plays several Western league matches; finances people to play in various regional and national events; thereby incurring travel costs and entry fees.
