JUNIOR BRIDGE
JUNIOR BRIDGE

Youth bridge remains online with events still being co-ordinated on a regional scale. The most popular event is still the Friday Evening session hosted by Young Chelsea (William Chenal).

The first F2F event will be the 2021 South Eastern Junior Bridge Camp on 23rd - 24th October this year. This will be run by Sussex CCBA, Surrey CBA, and Kent CBA in a similar format to the successful event in 2019, at the Bowles Rocks Activity Centre. It is intended for juniors from age 8 to 21, and for all ability groups from beginners and those who are 'a bit rusty' after lockdown to those who are more confident.

Beckenham Cafe Bridge - Tuesday 12 October
Beckenham Cafe Bridge - Tuesday 12 October

A café bridge event is a duplicate pairs bridge game set up over multiple cafés and restaurants. Pairs move to a new venue after each round, guided by a movement card or roadbook, while board sets remain on their starting tables throughout. The registration fee covers vouchers which are valid for refreshments at the venues. The Café bridge event has a social component and raises money for a good cause, and gains custom for local businesses. Café drives also help make bridge visible to the wider public, thereby encouraging more people to consider taking it up.
