To all NIBU Clubs and Council Members:

The IBU Emergency Committee have postponed the Forthcoming Moylan Trophy and Seniors Congress – they may be played towards the end of the summer depending on circumstances.

Mob: 07754492405


Please note that the NIBU Management Committee met this afternoon to decide how to respond to the current emergency.

It was decided to postpone all NIBU events between now through April 12th.

Competitions affected are:

Louis Herbert Pairs

Senior / Inter ‘A Pairs 

Mid Ulster Pairs

It is hoped that these competitions can be held at a later date, circumstances permitting.

The League fixtures and Northern Pairs in April are not affected at this time. The situation will be reviewed before they are due to take place. The website will contain up to date information.

Affiliated clubs must decide for themselves whether they wish to meet as normal or cancel Bridge sessions during the emergency.

if you are having withdrawal symptoms from the lack of playing bridge. There are apps available, as well as the website, and it's all free!😁



Dear Devenish Bridge Club Members

I hope you are well and adapting to the new world of totally virtual Bridge.


I have just developed a daily Bridgecast using BBO to go through an instructive, animated Intermediate or Advanced hand with my video commentary, drawing on 20 years of experience of teaching ACOL bridge. I have been pleased by the positive feedback:

“It’s almost as good as Jack giving a lesson in your own home” Diana, Kent


“Such a lovely way of keeping the brain ticking and they are so easy to follow and very informative. Lots of good tips! Hilary, Leeds

Full details and free hand demos on this link on my website


I thought that maybe this would be beneficial to Devenish Bridge Club members whilst they are unable to play bridge at the club and it would keep their bridge going over the next few months, as well as something to break up the day.

Members sign up for the month (less than 40p a day) and you can cancel at any time.

I would be most grateful if next time you email your club members you could kindly give them the Bridgecast link or if this is not possible, a mention on your website.


Thank you and let’s hope that it is not too long before our bridge clubs reopen their doors.


Best wishes,



Jack Stocken
