Warwickshire CBA has taken the decision to suspend, with immediate effect and until further notice, WPL, CPL and BPL. Players are asked to ensure, wherever possible, their usual availability (or that of their subs) for WPL, CPL and BPL into April/May/June. At least one week’s notice will be provided where events are reinstated.
Other calendared and countywide events/activities - including Leagues and Knock-out matches - will remain under review, with updates provided to team captains and on the website (www.warwickshirebridge.co.uk).
This decision was taken after consideration of all available information and our concern for the wellbeing of our members; with consideration given to both the physical and mental/social wellbeing, and concluding that whilst there is a minor impact on the social wellbeing of our members, the major consideration is their physical wellbeing. Clubs will be making their own decisions and issuing their own guidance regarding their activities, and you should refer to those websites for information.
The current status of events, subject to ongoing review, are as follows:
WPL – Suspended until further notice
CPL – Suspended until further notice
BPL – Suspended until further notice
Inter-County League Matches – Suspended
Seniors’ Teams (30 April) – Cancelled
National Swiss Teams (2&3 May) – Cancelled

The County Disaster Management Committee (Darren Evetts, Mike Thorley, Peter Abbott, Elayne Meakin, Peter Randall and Lin Birch), will keep the situation under review and update you with developments via the Website. If you need to make direct contact with a member of this group, details are below.
It is the aim of the County to protect the physical wellbeing of all our members, and those close to them, so I am sure we can rely on the common sense, consideration and understanding of all our members at this very worrying time, and I am certain we have taken the best possible decision to achieve that.
I wish you all the very best in navigating through the coming months.
