Online Bridge

Mike Craig (Castle Morpeth Bridge Club) has been working hard to put together online bridge events in the north east. Please visit Castle Morpeth for futher information. Link on home page or type in your browser. The EBU are offering several online tournament via the Bridge Base Online site. This site also gives a whole host of different tournament and soitaire bridge options and is well worth a look.



I am pleased to announce that all archive material provided by the wonderful Neil Aiston website is now available by following the link on the archive tab on the main menu. Thanks to my son for his invaluable help

NEBA Matches

Scottish Match and Northern Bridge League

As usual at this time of year I am asking for pairs who would be interested in representing NEBA

The NBL 2020 season starts on July 11 and runs for 4 Saturdays (dates and venues below).  It is a competition in which we enter a team of 8 in the B division only (for experienced club players like those that regularly play in the inter-club for your club).  The team will not be the same for each date because some pairs are not always available and we want to encourage as many pairs to participate as possible.

The Scottish Match involves two teams of 8 (so plenty of volunteers needed) and takes place on Sunday 5 July in Berwick.

If you would be interested in playing as a pair (or a person who might be able to be paired up) please let me know as soon as possible (by the beginning of April at the latest).  Just let me know the pairing and which dates you can manage (all 5 would be great).
