Your Teams League needs you!

Graham Campbell has recently taken over the running of the Deva Teams League and Cup competitions (for which many thanks) and is trying to recruit new teams and team members.

The league fixtures usually take place once or twice a month on Thursdays from September round to May and can be a great way to experience a different take on the game we all know and love.

Graham is currently having to revisit the schedule due to some teams losing members or dropping out so, if you would like to give teams bridge a try or just want more information, please email
