Lancashire Online League
Lancashire Online Bridge League
 
♠   ♣ 
 
New - Lancashire Online Bridge League
 
The Lancashire Contract Bridge Association (LCBA) is starting an online teams-of-4 bridge league in early July. This is a great opportunity for club players to form teams (of 4, 5 or 6 players) to continue playing bridge throughout the lockdown and beyond. Matches will be played on BBO so you will need an account which is free and easy to set up. You should have some experience of playing online bridge before the start of the league. Each league cycle (i.e. season) will last two months, and the cost will be £12 per team per cycle.
 
Matches will be 16 boards and played on Thursdays at 7pm.
 
Teams captains and players will not have to do much organising - the league fixtures will be automatically scheduled so all that's left to do, apart from actually playing in the matches, is for the home team captain set up the match on BBO (click here to find out how) and to enter the match results on the EBU website. Away captains will just need to let the home team captain know the names of who'll be playing in the match.
