Welcome to Nottinghamshire Contract Bridge Association
Nottingham Bridge Club CLOSED

In the light of the government’s policy, announced today, that everyone should avoid social contact, the Trustees have decided to close the Club premises with immediate effect.

I am sorry that this has to be done but, I am sure you will agree, we have no choice and it is in the best interest of members.

Chairman Nottingham BC

Green Point Event 17 May 2020

Please share this information with your members: NCBA  Green Point event 17 May is cancelled

You will recently have seen a note from EBU exerting us all to take care regarding the pandemic currently taking hold. And it features in the news on a daily almost hourly basis. 

We do not wish to be scare mongering nor do we want to minimising the impact of this serious situation. Its a difficult balance to strike.

But we feel that we have a responsibility to our Bridge community especially given the Bridge demographics. 

NCBA are keen not to contribute to furthering the spread of this serious virus so we have been considering what action we can take. Apart from emphasising the Government and EBU advice, we have decided that we will be cancelling our May Green Point event. This is on the basis that apparently the UK is about 5 weeks behind the situation in Italy and it is anticipated that the position will be building to a peak from May.  

Green point events are different in that they generally attract players from outside the County and given the Coronavirus situation we anticipate that people will not be travelling such distances. Indeed gatherings may well have been restricted by then.  

We are being proactive in taking early action. Please take note and protect yourselves, as well as being considerate in protecting others. The biggest impact will be achieved by individuals taking personal responsibility. 

Best Wishes

Toni Smith
