Welcome to NEBA

Please use the information link on the main menu to find added documents until such time as we have a dedicated page.


NEBA is in the process of investigating whether members would be interested in an online presence for the county.

Initially we are considering a monthly competition on Friday afternoon (aiming for Friday 17 July to start with and perhaps a Danish Pairs which is similar to Swiss Pairs) The cost would probably be £2.50 for a session (reducing if sufficient tables were playing each time).

If you are interested then email me on a new address: giving details of:

NEBA Teams Update

Match vs East Scotland:


Congratulations to the A team who won 60 - 34

Commiserations to the B team who lost 36 -64

riendlies vs Gloucestershire

The A team lost in a friendly earlier in the lockdown, but a return is being played over the next 2 weekends with both A and B teams.

President’s Cup

Also being played online in the absence of the Northern Bridge League this year.

After the first of 11 matches against other counties our team of Steve Kitching & Neil Oliver, Fred Robinson & Peter LI-Ping, Sue & Dick Davies and David & Gill Gold have achieved an impressive victory (of +47 imps I think).

NEBA Congress
At the last meeting of the NEBA Executive Committee, it was decided to cancel this year’s NEBA Congress, scheduled for the first weekend in November. Due to the uncertainty surrounding social distancing, we felt that we had no option but to cancel. We are currently negotiating with the Marriott Hotel for next year, and I will advise you of the dates of next year’s Congress as soon as possible. I hope to see many NEBA members attending next year.

Charity Sim Pairs

Morpeth BC has agreed to run a heat of a Charity SIM Pairs in aid of Kidney Research Charities.

As you know, I hosted a SIM earlier in aid of NHS charities, and this time the event will be run on very similar lines.  The initiative comes again from Caterham BC, Surrey, with local masterpoints and national masterpoints available.  Consolidation of results will be performed by Ecats (known for the annual Children in need SIMs) as will the collection of hosting club's contributions.

Our heat will be on Wednesday, July 8th at 13:00.  We will play 21 boards. The fee is £5 per player of which £4 will be the charity donation, the remainder will cover UMS charges for uploading to EBU for masterpoints.

I hope you will feel able to play.  Our NHS event was a great success both locally and nationally.

You will need to pre-register with me before Tuesday, July 7.  If you wish to play, please reply with your name, the name of your intended partner, both BBO aliases, and EBU numbers.  

Please pay your entry fee via online banking and BACS to:

Morpeth Bridge Club

Sort Code: 20-59-43

Account  number: 43321665

Reference: KIdney + your BBO Alias

Other heats may well be held at different times and on different days - the final day being Thursday, July 8, with the same set of boards.  Results - minus the board layouts - will be posted on the Morpeth website as soon as results become available and thus if you plan to play in our event, you are asked not to play in any other heat that you may become aware of.

I look forward to hearing from you.



Many clubs in the north east offer bridge classes for different levels of experience. You can find this information by going to the individual club web sites following the link on this page. There will be a page with all this information when I have updated classes from club secretaries.
