Cafe Bridge in the Bromley Area (Thu 8th Sept / 13th Oct 2022)
Cafe Bridge in the Bromley Area (Thu 8th Sept / 13th Oct 2022)

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.

Two Charity Cafe [Duplicate] Bridge events this autumn, both in the London Borough of Bromley.  The first is on Thursday, 8 September at West Wickham followed by Thursday, 13 October at Beckenham. Both events are in aid of St Christopher's Hospice.

Kent Juniors

Tom and Thomas were selected for the England Youth Euro teams in holland this week and Kent supported them with £300 each towards their costs. 

 

The U16 England team did fabulously, coming second (to Poland) out of 16 countries and being great ambassadors for the game. See information on Kent U16 player:  Tom Furness 

 

The under 21 team have also qualified for the world finals, coming 8th. See information on Kent U21 player: Thomas Gardner.

 

None of this would have been possible without the generous support of KCBA/EBU members. Click for up to date scores
