Postponement of events

We regret to inform you that due to the current and ongoing status of the Coronavirus in the UK and beyond, we have decided to postpone all live bridge events.

We will advise you, if and when, a revised timetable is arranged. Some events may be cancelled altogether, and some might be played at a later date. There are too many uncertainties to make any commitments.

Stay safe. Middlesex County Bridge Association

Congrats to Middx Trialists

After a 5-day trial, the team called Pheonix, emerged as winner.

The event they were playing in was the qualification for The World Bridge Games, due to be played in this summer, in August. Of course, with so many issues going on, the event itself  may or may not go ahead.

But let's congratulate the winning team:  

James Thrower, Croz Croswell, Marusa Gold & Todor Tiholov.

James, Marusa and Todor are Middlesex players.
