Sussex/Kent Green Point Events

We are pleased to announce that our next green-pointed venture will be joint-sponsored by Sussex and Kent on the weekend of 29th-30th October - Swiss Pairs on the Saturday and Swiss Teams on the Sunday.  We hope to make this a friendly affair and to attract players of all standards (green points are a bonus!).  It will be held at Tunbridge Wells Bridge Club - a lovely facility and just next door to a Premier Inn if you want to make a weekend of it.  You can enter now!

SCCBA Venture Pairs
SCCBA Venture Pairs

8 tables participated in this year's Venture Pairs at Worthing Bridge Club on Sunday July 31st on a relaxed afternoon with a friendly atmosphere.  A very tasty afternoon tea was enjoyed by all.

Congratulations to winners Mike Percik and Diane Shimwell.

The runners-up were Peter Nursten and Dawn Sullings.

Many thanks to organiser Eileen Perrigo and director Alexa Baxter.


SCCBA has recently been at the forefront of Junior Bridge promotion in England and we are proud that once again we will be represented by Oliver Powell at the European Junior Bridge Championships in the Netherlands from 19th-26th July.  Sussex has contributed £700 towards Ollie's expenses to help him and the team thrive throughout the week.  Good luck Ollie!


Congratulations to the team of David Telfer, Peter Burns, Alan and James Hobden who came through a strong field to win this event - see full results.


The Gladys Hakki Trophy is awarded annually to a Sussex member who has given outstanding service to county and club over a number of years.  This year's very deserving winner is Fergus Cameron who was presented with the trophy at the Sussex Candles event at Henfield on June 19th.

Fergus has been on the Bexhill Bridge Club committee for a total of 18 years, during which time he has spent significant periods in one of the Officer positions, i.e. Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer.   In addition to this, Fergus has kept all the financial records of the 1066 Online Club.

See full nomination by Bexhil Bridge Club.


14 teams enjoyed bridge and splendid food at the Sussex Candles at Henfield on Sunday June 19th - the county's first face-to-face event for over 2 years!  Many thanks to Organiser Peter Clinch, Director David Galpin (with assistance from Peter Bates) and Charlotte Setahul who supplied the catering.

Congratulations to the team of David Benjamin, Matthew Smith, Mike Keeping and Matthew Read who were winners by just 1 VP.  The runners-up were Alan Setchell, Jane Handley, Guy Davies and Terence Fishlock with JIm Downes, Josie Allen, Duncan McSorland and Jim Norman in 3rd place.


The 2022 Championship Teams competition has been completed.  Congratulations to the winning team of Alan & Nanette Gillespie, Mike Moody and John Williams who defeated the team captained by Andy Morris (Chris Phillips, Dave Nasataszczuk, and Philip Roxburgh) by 35 IMPs.  The match was played online over 2 sessions of 24 boards each.  The winning team will go on to represent Sussex in the EBU Pachabo Cup, to be played on the weekend of 11/12 June and we wish them every success in this prestigious National Competition.
