Picture Shows Players At The 2017 Final

The Cancer Research UK 42nd Annual Greater London Bridge Tournament 2018 is now in progress.  But make a note for next year!

The tournament is for pairs and runs from September to May.   Initially, players play in small local leagues of four or five pairs, playing chicago bridge matches either at your home or that of your opponents.  After a 1st round from September-December, league winners and runners-up advance to a second 'group stage' from January-April.  The leading 32 pairs from the second phase then play in a duplicate bridge final, which for the last few years has been held at the Royal National Hotel in London.

This annual bridge tournament provides players of all standards with an enjoyable social experience whilst supporting the hugely worthwhile work of Cancer Research UK. Entry details for 2019 will be posted when available.

Bridge Events in London

WELCOME to this web site. This website is intended to list - in one place - all special open-to-all bridge events in London. 

The listing is intended to inform potential players of the full range of bridge events available in London, and also to allow organisers to avoid calendar clash.  Included are not only special club events - e.g. weekend swiss events, memorial tournaments, etc. but also social and charity events and cafe bridge drives within the M25.  Also listed are  'official' county events from both London (London Metropolitan Bridge Association) and Middlesex (Middlesex County Bridge Association), and EBU National Events where these are in London.

Specifically excluded are events put on by clubs that are aimed exclusively or primarily at their members. And for regular weekly duplicates, check the appropriate club's own website.

Event orgnisers are encouraged to send in details of their events for inclusion in this list and where a web link for further infomation is available this will be published too. Ideally your event flyer will be available online as a google doc or similar so, by sending me the link to post, a single click will allow interested players to see full information.

To send details of your events please contact the operator of this site Ned Paul via email -
