During the corona pandemic, all events have been cancelled or postponed until further notice

Lancashire has a bridge club in most major towns, with several clubs having a host system to ensure visitors can get a game. Contact details, club times are on the Clubs page though you should check before attending a new club. Beginners, intermediate classes are also listed on the Clubs page. This website has details of forthcoming competitions and results. Unaffiliated clubs may become a direct member of the EBU. This entitles you to play in Lancashire competitions, be eligible for Lancashire County Teams, and attend all Lancashire Council Meetings.

County Matches
Selection of Lancashire Teams Updated 29th October 2019

1. All players must be members of the EBU with first allegiance to Lancashire.
2. Teams to represent LCBA are selected annually for the Tollemache Cup, the President's Cup, and for matches in the Northern Bridge League and against Cumbria.
3. Teams will be picked by a Selection Committee, which will be elected at the December Council meeting.
4. The Selection Committee maintains a database of pairs who they consider of suitable standard to represent the County. Prospective new players who wish to be considered should make themselves known to the Chairman of Selectors.
5. Criteria employed in the selection of teams include established experience; involvement and performance in National, Regional LCBA County and Club events; and a desire to give pairs of sufficient ability the opportunity to represent the County.

6. A further requirement (laid down by Council) is that to qualify for Lancashire representative matches other than the Tollemache, players are normally expected to have demonstrated support for LCBA events over the recent 12-18 months.

7. Selection of the team to represent Lancashire in the Tollemache Cup will be based on picking the best available pairs.
