Kent Events for New Players and Those Rated NGS 9 or Below

Whilst we particularly want those who have learnt bridge in the last couple of years to play or those currently learning, these events are open to anyone of the appropriate grade.

The NGS4 & below event is a great opportunity to come and play bridge with new people outside of your club or class but of about the same standard as yourself.

If you do not know what your NGS grade is, you can find it on the English Bridge Union (EBU) website in ‘My EBU’. Alternatively you can email KCBAEast@gmail.com and we will let you know what it is. It is your grade on Wednesday before the event starts that will determine your eligibility but do not wait until then to find out your current grade.

The event will be held on Bridge Base Online (BBO). Click for details of how to obtain a free BBO Username. You can then practice a bit for free on BBO either with your partner or other friends or in ‘Solitaire’ games with robots so you are familiar with the interface.
