Welcome to Norfolk and Norwich Bridge Club
All bridge is cancelled

Updated 20th March 2020

In line with the latest recommendation from the Government and the English Bridge Union, we are suspending all our club events until further notice.

We are of course disappointed to have to take this action and will follow new developments but our prime concern is the welfare of all members.

Events in our Calendar, on this site, due to take place before 1 July 2020 have been deleted. We shall then review the situation. 

Stuart Langridge (Chairman).

Spring League


Our Spring League cycle for teams of 4 started on Friday 17th January, with 25 teams in play. Teams' starting positions should be available on this web site now that promotions, relegations, and other changes have been confirmed.

 We are grateful to the Noverre NDS team's effort in encouraging more players to enter.
All standards are welcome and you don't need to be a member of our club to enter a team. The cost is £48 per team which covers all four months. 

If you would like further information, please contact
Paul Darby (phdarby@btinternet.com or 01953 860336).

Cross-IMP (X-IMP) Scoring

We run the Butler Trophy competition and a few other events with X-IMP scoring. For a short explanation, have a look at this document (if you disagree with it let me know!). Examination of a Brown Trophy session results will provide a good example. Click here: X-IMP Scoring

EBU Blue and White Books 2019

The EBU has just published the latest versions of the Blue Book and the White Book.  The former is the Handbook of EBU Permitted Understandings – in other words permitted conventions and systems.  The latter is subtitled “Technical Matters” and is an adjunct to The Laws including interpretation of the laws and more general guidance for TDs, organisers, scorers etc.

Both booklets are available for download from the EBU web site.  Neither is exactly suitable for light reading but both include important information.

Find a Partner

Tom Melvin, our secretary, is running the Find a Partner service.  If you are in need of a partner, please send him an email: t.m.melvin@uea.ac.uk and he will circulate the membership.

Convention Cards

Would partnerships please remember that they should always have fully completed convention cards, available for their oponents to see.

This notice is not aimed at scratch partnerships.

Reserves for the League

League teams are sometimes in need of a reserve, but the captains are unsure of who they can ask to play.  To assist in this, we are now putting on the website: underneath where the teams are listed, those players who are prepared to be a reserve. 

If you are not registered in a specific team and you would be prepared to play as a reserve, would you please email Stuart (eaton42a@hotmail.com) with your preferred phone number and your details will be listed.

Chief Tournament Director and Responsibilities

Peter Cotes has kindly agreed to be our Chief Tournament Director (07494 597772).

The Chief Tournament Director is responsible for organising the TD rota and for arranging suitable appeals committees as and when needed.
