EBU meeting

At Tuesday's EBU meeting, Gordon Rainsford said he doubted we'd be playing f2f before May 2021. My best estimate is that he's right - but it won't be before September 21. Adrianb Darnell

Durham online bridge

Durham Bridge Club hosts a Pairs competition over 18 boards on the BBO platform every Tuesday afternoon. Start time is 2.15. Everyone is welcome. We typically have a minimum of 10 tables, and the NGS average is around 50. The charge is £2.50 per session per non-member, payable by BACS, monthly in arrears (using ‘Tuesday pairs’ as the reference; bank details are on our webpages).

If anyone wishes to register do please email Adrian Darnell at with your BBO name and EBU number and I’ll register you on the site as a friend!

I look forward to welcoming new players.

Latest Covid-19 Advice

Latest Covid Announcement from the EBU:

Face-to-Face Bridge and Government Regulations

We have so far been unable to get advice from any government bodies giving details of how or when bridge clubs might be able to play face-to-face while following the regulations. Public Health England have told us that if the games are in a community hall or similar then this guidance may apply, particularly section 3c. PHE have also said “Advice regarding a venue being Covid Secure can be obtained through the Local Authority for that venue and will differ depending on the venue, its size and function.”

The EBU will not be organising any face-to-face games or competitions for the foreseeable future. Whilst clubs are responsible for making their own decisions and arrangements, they should do so in full knowledge of the latest general and social distancing regulations.
