Welcome to Herefordshire Bridge Association
Gloucestershire & Herefordshire Green Point Weekend


This year our green point weekend is on Saturday 24th July (Swiss Pairs) and Sunday 25th July (Swiss Teams), on RealBridge.

Play on each day will start at 11am and there will be seven 6 board rounds, with a break after 3 rounds.

Full details and entry instructions can be found at


There will be weekly online pairs sessions on BBO every Thursday at 7pm. Entry is 3 BBO$.

These are open to all members of Herefordshire and Gloucestershire clubs, and other HBA members. They are EBU registered sessions with master points and NGS.


To participate there are three basic requirements:

  • You must be registered on BBO;
  • You have a deposit of at least 3 BB$ in your BBO account;
  • You need to be pre-registered for these sessions. This only needs to be done once. If you have already registered for the Ross-on-Wye Virtual Bridge Club, you will automatically be registered, so just turn-up and play.
    Otherwise, you must inform Chris Chowney at that your partnership intend to play AND supply your BBO log-on names and EBU numbers.

To find detailed instructions on using BBO, and how to join these sessions, choose the menu item "Online Bridge".

If you haven’t played online bridge before this could be an opportunity to start. We are also offering help on playing on BBO. If you are interested, contact us through the website (under menu item "Information") or email Chris Chowney.

There are also YouTube videos that show the various processes being used. These can be found on the Ross-on-Wye Bridge Club home page.

The difference from face-to-face bridge that most people struggle with is "self-alerting" so please check this out.


Thanks to Ross and Newent Bridge Clubs for providing most of the documentation.
