Welcome to the website of the Highland District of the Scottish Bridge Union

Here you will find information for SBU members in the District, and visitors to the Highlands will be able to locate and contact affiliated clubs which would be more than happy to welcome them for a game of bridge.


The SBU has launched MEMPAD (which stands for Membership and Master Point Administration Database), a major new initiative to facilitate the submission of Master Points and the administration of the Master Point system. This development involves a number of phases, but the following features are already in place:

Members can -

* update their personal contact details

* view their own Master Point status

Club secretaries can -

* view their members' contact details

* update details of their office bearers

* submit local Master Points electronically (if using a standard scoring program)

Club treasurers can -

* reconcile members'  SBU subscriptions with payments made to the SBU

You will need a password to log on to the system - to receive this, please email quoting your Master Point number.

For our online teaching in schools this year, we have been using New Tricks videos

New Tricks is a charity formed to promote bridge learning.

In addition to videos for schools they have created many fun videos for much more experienced players.

You can donate to the work of New Tricks which is a bridge charity working in bridge education in innovative ways eg battle of the partners.

Anyone considering teaching bridge in schools should als look at 5 Nations Education Resource

Each club will get 1 rule book free. Other copies cost £5.
