Play Bridge in Norfolk - or PBIN for short

There's now one website where you can find all you need to know about playing bridge in Norfolk.

It's got info on everything from teaching in schools, U3A, fast track learning, individual tuition and clubs from easy starters to county level.

Plus links to the EBU, NCBA and EBED and the low-down on the county's affiliated and non-affiliated clubs.

PBIN's primary aim is to get more people playing in clubs - but their secondary objective is just encouraging more people to learn and play wherever!
